Among the mansions in the high rent district of Coto de Caza, there apparently lives a freeloader who doesn't pay rent.
And none of the neighbors are likely to try to collect.
According to the blotter of the Orange County Sheriff's Department, a woman called 9-1-1 early Monday evening after spotting a mountain lion on her swanky street.
The cougar darted around the corner of the Percheron cul-de-sac toward Palomino among the large homes northwest of the intersection of Coto de Caza Drive and San Miguel.
The homes on the street range from $1.56 million to $2.65 million and as the cougar walks—which is wherever he wants—located within 1,000 feet from where the Real Housewives of Orange County was filmed in its first season.
The woman saw paw prints in the mud in the back yard, and told the 9-1-1 dispatch that a portion of the backyard fence was down that allowed easy access to the property.
The woman was told the sheriff would notify the California Department of Fish and Game, but Fish and Game will not respond unless the Orange County Sheriff confirms the sighting.
The call came from Percheron at 6:08 p.m.
