The reason for the increase in attacks and sightings in California is absolutely clear. Estimates of the current population of mountain lions in California are around 5,000 to 6,000, which is probably not far off from what it was prior to the human devastation of their population.
According the California Department of Fish & Game, there are a lot more lions than that. They estimate that there are now some 15,000 to 20,000 lions in California.

(If you don't want people to get your goat, don't tell them where it's tied.)
That sounds closer to the numbers that I’ve read and they’re on the increase.
