Authorities responded to reports that a wild animal was at 362 North Grand Ave. (map) around 10 p.m. Wednesday, Monrovia Police Department Sgt. Coleman said.

Homeowner Barry Barmore said he saw the mountain lion when it hit the glass door that separated it from his cat, Petey.

"It sounded like somebody hit the glass with their fist," Barmore said.

Police did not find any signs of the mountain lion, but Barmore said its saliva could still be seen on the glass door.

Neighbors also reported recent mountain lion sightings.
