Mountain Lion Sighting
The City of Fairfield has reported the sighting of a mountain lion on Rancho Solano open space. A park ranger has been onsite to follow up and Fish & Wildlife has been informed. This news serves as an important reminder that we live in an area that is home to a number of wild animals and precautions should always be taken with loose dogs and cats, and most importantly, children. It is important that residents be aware of their surroundings, particularly in the evening hours, and should always be vigilant to the possibility of wild animals such as mountain lions, bobcats and coyotes.
Accessing Open Space: Homeowners Must Close Gates
It is extremely important that homeowners who access the open space areas make certain the access gates are left properly secured. Many of the hills are used for grazing cattle this time of year and there have been repeated incidences of cattle leaving fenced-in areas and entering the community as a result of resident negligence when re-securing gates. This puts the cattle at extreme risk and creates problems for the community. Gates that are secured with chains need to be looped around multiple times to properly secure the gate. It is important that we take basic steps to ensure the safety of the cattle and our community by making sure gates are secure.
