A mountain lion in Montara

PRESS RELEASE

At 6:30 PM today, September 13, 2011, a mountain lion was seen in the vicinity of the 1900 block of Sunshine Valley Road, Montara, California.

If you see a mountain lion DO NOT APPROACH IT, especially one that is feeding or with offspring. 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.
