02/26/15 10:17At 9:00 AM this morning, a mountain lion was seen in the 200 block of Mountain Wood Lane in Woodside, California. The caller reported that the adult mountain lion was on the front porch of her residence for approximately 15 minutes, prior to the arrival of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Deputies. Upon arrival, Sheriff’s Deputies saw the mountain lion run from the front porch and into the hills. There was also an unreported sighting of a mountain lion with two cubs this past Sunday in the same general area. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife was notified of today’s mountain lion sighting. This message was sent on behalf of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Headquarters. Jim Gilletti OES2

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.
