LAPD officers were looking for a possible mountain lion on a roof in this area.
Los Angeles police Tuesday night were investigating a report of a possible mountain lion on the roof of a home in Chatsworth.

The call came in about 10 p.m. from a resident in the 22700 block Dale Court, saying there was a large animal on the roof that might be a mountain lion, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The neighborhood is near the  brush-covered hillsides of Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park.

Officers in a patrol car were searching the area but had not seen any animal.

"If they see anything suspicious, they will call Fish and Game," Officer Karen Rayner told The Times.
