The temperature dependence of muon spin relaxation rate exhibits a significant increase below $$sim$$130 K in CaB$$_6$$ and $$sim$$110 K in BaB$$_6$$, while no sigh of spontaneous muon precession signal under a zero field is observed. Moreover, the electric field gradient at the boron site measured by muon level-crossing resonance exhibits a step like change at $$sim$$110 K in CaB$$_6$$. These results suggest a change in electronic state and the associated emergence of weak random magnetism below 110-130 K in these alkaline earth hexaborides.
