A mountain lion was caught on camera ‘sizing’ up children in a San Francisco neighborhood.

Timothy Kerrisk, who filmed the incident, told local news station KRON that he thought a dog had gotten into his Pacifica yard. Then he realized what it was ― and that it was watching children playing in the street.

“I started yelling at the kids, ‘Get inside! Get inside! Get inside!’” Kerrisk told the station.

Kerrisk uploaded his footage without the audio, which he said in the comments section was “just me yelling for the neighbor across the street to come down and grab the kids.”

After a few moments, the large cat jumped the fence and hid under a truck – still checking out the kids on their bikes.

Zara McDonald of the Bay Area Puma Project told NBC Bay Area that the group has been tracking this particular mountain lion, which is a “people observer.” She said there’s been “nothing abnormal or scary or threatening about its behavior thus far,” but that people should give the cats plenty of space if they encounter them.
