    Animal control officers put out a warning to residents to be on the lookout for a mountain lion lurking around Hesperia in Southern California on Tuesday.

    The mountain lion was spotted near Arrowhead Lake Road.

    The warning comes after the release of a stunning photo of a mountain lion perched on a 35-foot telephone pole 22 miles away in Lucerne Valley.

    Hesperia Animal Control warned that mountain lions may venture into yards if they are searching for food and water.

    The warning also said to never make contact.

    Back in 2011, a Hesperia family found a mountain lion living in the garage for several days.

    If you spot a mountain lion in the area, Hesperia Animal Control advises to call the following number immediately: 760-947-1707.
