Report of mountain lion sighting in Woodside

 

Someone reported seeing a mountain lion at 11:57 p.m. Tuesday night in Woodside, the Sheriff's Office said today. The reported sighting was in the vicinity of 3000 Portola Road near Woodside Road.

The Sheriff's Office offers these tips:

■ If you see a mountain lion, do not approach it, especially one that is feeding or with kittens. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation.

■ 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.
