In addition, a mountain lion was reported sighted around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, in the 800 block of Portola Road and around 6:15 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24, near Hayfields Road, county officials said.
Residents are advised to avoid hiking when mountain lions are most active — at dawn, dusk or at night — and to keep a close watch on small children.
Here is advice from the California Department of Fish and Game on what to do when spotting a mountain lion:
• 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.
• Avoid hiking or jogging when mountain lions are most active: at dawn, dusk, and at night.
• 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.
