Responding to a mountain lion stalking incident, state officials closed a Moorpark-area park as a precaution Friday--but decided not to hunt down and kill a pair of lions that threatened two horseback riders this week. "The incident does not indicate that these cats are a danger to public safety," said Capt. Roger Reese, who heads the state Department of Fish and Game's Ventura office. "Neither the horses or riders were hurt in the incident," he said.

Ventura County park and law enforcement officials are gearing up for an onslaught of holiday tourists, beefing up patrols on area freeways and highways as the busiest travel weekend of the year approaches. "We'll have 75% of all available officers working," California Highway Patrol Officer Rob Romo said. "There's a substantial increase over normal traffic this time of year." A maximum enforcement period began at 6 p.m. Wednesday and will run through midnight Sunday, Romo said.
