09/03/15 10:01At approximately 9:15 pm last night, Wednesday 9-2-2015, a mountain lion was seen in the vicinity of the 100 block of Cervantes Road in Portola Valley, California. Sheriff's patrol units arrived and observed the mountain lion and described it as appoximately 100 lbs. and feeding on a deer carcass. The lion subsequently left towards a rural area.

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.
