Not to criticize the Almanac's editing, but how did your headline writer determine that it was a second mountain lion and not just a second sighting of the same mountain lion? Something distinctive about the animal(s) that we're not being told? Just wondering.

Why is it news every time there is a mountain lion sighting in either Woodside or Portola Valley? Those communities border their habitat. It's like telling people in Alaska there has been a moose siting or people in Tahoe saying they saw a bear.
These residents should be accustomed to it by now and take appropriate action like the folks in Alaska and Tahoe -- stop hitting the panic button every time somebody sees a mountain lion.
