Apple OS X 10… Wait, Real Mountain Lion Spotted in LA Park

Woah, when I saw this headline this morning I thought that maybe the Associated Press had a new figure about the number of MacBooks being used in public places. But no, I was wrong. Instead of an article detailing the penetration of Apple’s brand new OS X Mountain Lion, the Associated Press said that a real mountain lion was spotted in Griffith Park, a public park in Los Angeles.

Apparently it’s not much of a surprise and researchers believe the felines do inhabit the area quite regularly. However, the park’s cameras caught one on tape recently, pretty much solidifying those beliefs. Local biologists in the area think that it’s common for the wild cats to cross local highways to enter the park. They believe the mountain lion to be a 3 year-old that probably originated from the Santa Monica Mountains.

You don’t have to worry if you live in the area, however. Apparently mountain lions don’t often like to hang around with humans and won’t approach anyone.
