Mountain Lion Captured on Video at Peninsula Home

A resident of the Peninsula town of Ladera captured video of a mountain lion on his side porch early Sunday morning.

Mike Stern posted the surveillance camera footage of the cougar to YouTube. It shows the big cat visiting his home on Pecora Way in Ladera, a community in San Mateo County.

In the footage, the lion walks up onto a small deck or porch, sniffs around for about 8-10 seconds and then leaves from the camera's frame.

Stern said it's the first time he's seen or captured a mountain lion on video.
