Mountain Lion Browses Gourmet Ghetto, Meets Unhappy End

mountainlion If you happened to be strolling around the Gourmet Ghetto area very early this morning, you may have come across a rather unusual sight. A mountain lion, first reported to the Berkeley Police Department at 2:13 a.m., led police on a bit a of a chase [1].

The big cat was eventually shot dead around 3:26 a.m. by officers near 1630 Walnut St., about a block away from Chez Panisse and just around the corner from sandwich holy grail and Clog favorite Gregoire [2].

It is still quite unclear what the mountain lion’s motivation was for promenading in North Berkeley in the middle of the night, and it seems we may never know.
