New fright therefore for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just weeks after ill-intentioned people illegally broke into their home on several occasions. And to believe the Daily Mail , so it would not be the only intrusion of which the couple could be a victim. The Duke and Duchess could indeed receive a visit from the puma since they have chickens, offered to their son Archie during the global Covid pandemic, and two dogs. Easy prey for the animal as recalled by Sharon Byrne, the director of the Montecito Association, who advised the inhabitants of the district to properly secure their garbage and their chicken coops. “Chickens can be fast but also food for animals on the hunt so you have to be very careful that they are safe” , she said. Before adding: 'We are also asking residents to secure their trash so that animals cannot scavenge for leftovers, to have night lighting, alarms, cameras, etc.' . The director of the association finally wanted to be reassuring: 'In general, cougars are solitary hunters and do not like to approach humans' , she explained. And for her to conclude: “We therefore hope that the animal will leave on its own” .
