The lions are tough to trap without using live bait. Lt. Sheree Christensen, California Dept. of Fish and Game, says "Mountain lions are predators, they like to kill their food."
Gloribell Rosalia, Hayward resident, says "I can't sleep, I keep thinking about the mountain lion eating one of our family."
The Department of Fish and Game is telling residents to keep their animals indoors at night and in the early morning.
