A deer found dead this week at the Sports Complex in Glendale was likely killed by an adult mountain lion and an offspring, officials said.

Community Services and Park personnel found the deer's body this week at 2200 Fern Lane with mountain lion footprints nearby, officials said. Glendale police suggest that residents take steps to protect children and small pets from mountain lions in the area.

Installing ample outdoor lighting, trimming bushes and providing shelter for domestic animals are some way residents can avoid attracting deer or mountain lions, according to police.

Mountain lions weren't the only animals roaming the neighborhood; earlier this week, residents reported seeing a large brown bear.

Mountain lion sightings may be reported to the Glendale Police Department at (818) 548-4911.
