At about 0715 on 4-4-13 I was 15 minutes SOUTH of Warner Springs on my way to Barrel Springs when I saw a cougar on trail right, within 100 yards. We had a stare down and it bolted for the brush; it was magnificient. About a week later a friend told me that her friend had, on probably that same day, seen a mountain lion dragging a deer across a road; when she honked, the lion dropped it and both the deer and lion ran off. This same person said that there were reports from residents of the town of a cougar running at their dogs. Although I did see the lion, the rest is hearsay.
