Mountain lion spotted in Portola Valley

 

San Mateo County officials are alerting residents of a mountain lion sighting Thursday night in Portola Valley.

The cat was spotted at about 9 p.m. in the 700 block of Wayside Road and reported to the Sheriff's Office Friday morning.

County officials advise residents not to approach mountain lions and say the animals typically avoid confrontation. Residents are also advised to avoid hiking or jogging during dawn, dusk and at night, when mountain lions are most active, and to keep a close watch on small children.
