Report of mountain lion near Woodside

 

By Bay City News Service

A mountain lion was spotted in the Teague Hill Open Space Preserve near Woodside this morning (March 12), the third time in 10 days that a cougar has been seen in the same area, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

The animal was seen at about 7:10 a.m. near 50 Roan Place, according to the Sheriff's Office.

County officials are warning residents not to approach mountain lions, which tend to avoid confrontation. Residents are advised not to jog or hike at dawn, dusk and at night, when mountain lions are most active, and to keep a close watch on small children.

I am amazed that they have to tell people to stay away,you would think that would be a natural response.
