GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - The areas between Butte City and Ord Bend have had some dangerous visitors the past few weeks.
Three mountain lions have been seen by multiple people who live in the area.
One local fisherman, who did not want to be identified, said he was hunting turkeys and when he went to pick one up the cats had beat him to it.
He said the two large ones were eating the turkey and when the smallest one saw him it started to charge him.
"There's a lot of people who hunt and fish in this area you know?" he said. "You know a lot of kids - a lot of junior hunters - come out here to shoot their first turkey," he said. "Yeah, I mean it's dangerous. These animals are dangerous, but they're allowed to be there. It's their domain. I am not trying to push the cats out or have them hunted or killed, it's just people need to be aware of the danger."
Another landowner said he's come across about 3 deer carcasses per week since he first spotted the cats.
