Traps have been put in place to capture the lion
Authorities are hoping to speak Sunday to a 50-year-old homeless man who suffered severe injuries in an apparent mountain lion attack in Perris.
An emergency call was placed around 8 a.m. Saturday morning of a man suffering injuries to his face, chest, head and arms, according to Dan Sforza, assistant chief of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
The man, who was injured near a makeshift shelter near Highway 74 and Navajo Road, was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery, Sforza said.

Mountain lion attack Ping.
Highway 74 and Navajo Road is very close to residences.
There are neighborhoods all over the place around the intersection, and the High school is less than a mile from that intersection.
Thanks...I just checked a google map and it looked like it’s well within city limits, I haven’t been in that area for over 40 years.
Glad, but it seems odd the cat didn’t kill him.
I’d say it’s a miracle going by the description of his wounds unless there were one or more homeless people that helped him. I checked a lot of articles but there’s little information as yet being released.
I don’t understand why they give Tablet devices to homeless people anyway .....
I had a dream about a mountain lion last night. In a swollen river, struggling to make it....dark colored fur.
Thanks for the Ping, Jaz!
“and the High school is less than a mile from that intersection.”
Scott Lancaster was killed and partly eaten by a mountain lion within sight of the high school he attended. Operation Desert Storm opened the same day and the NatureNazi’s in media happily spiked the story.
I asked for a copy of the crime scene video under the Colorado Open Records Act and received a VHS copy that had been copied and recopied until it was very un-sharp.
The actual autopsy photos were never provided.
The cat first stripped off the face and scalp, then neatly opened the chest and ate the organs.
Were any business to have sold a product that killed a person every year or two, and mutilated many more, litigation would soon end the problem. When the Gubment and its AgencyPersons quarter dangerous beasts on the public, the Courts do nothing.
Courts support their paymasters, Big Gubment and their decisions tend to prove that just as “Who Pays The Piper Call The Tune” who pays the Marsupial Magistrates decides their cases.
Thanks for the ping jazusamo. I haven’t been in that area for well over 40 years either. Used to go rabbit hunting in the hills nearby. Little tiny town back then.
Haven’t seen any mountain lion tracks near my house in a couple months now.
This whole story is one big lie. We have a Democrat President and California has a Democrat Governor. There aren’t any homeless people.
Rabbit hunting is why we used to go to that area also and there were lots of ‘em.
I’d bet your mountain lions are still around and you’ll see their tracks, but you know that and you’re ready for them. :-)
Both of those RATS would swear your right. :)
Don’t blame me. I voted to repeal the ban on mountain lion hunting in this idiotic State.
That has to be one of the idiotic things the voters did, we’d moved out before they voted to protect them.
He stunk too muck to be eaten.
Always ready for ‘em.
