I'm thinking that the town of Glendale invaded the puma's territory...it's all a matter of perspective.

Don't forget that an adult lion's territory can be 1,000 square miles, or more, depending on terrain and food supply, including deer, rabbits, rodents and so on. They're very solitary except for mating season, and that not for long. There's essentially no hunting pressure on them here, and hasn't been for decades; their population has been growing for quite a while with little restriction due to resource availability.

We'll talk about the bears later; you don't see them much, but there's evidence of in this area from the hills above San Francisco down through the coast range here and south past Monterey.

And that's just the local coast range population.
