Mountain lion spotted in same area for third time in ten days


At 7:10 this AM a mountain lion was seen in the vicinity of 50 Roan Place in Woodside California. This is the third time in 10 days that a mountain lion had been seen in the same area.

If you see a mountain lion DO NOT APPROACH IT, especially one that is feeding or with kittens. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation.

Here are a few tips:

Avoid hiking or jogging when mountain lions are most active—dawn, dusk, and at night.

Keep a close watch on small children.

If you encounter a mountain lion, do not run; instead, face the animal, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms; throw rocks or other objects.

Pick up small children.
