Mountain lion sighting in Emerald Lake Hills

Someone reported seeing a mountain lion around 11 p.m. Wednesday in the 3800 block of Hamilton Way in the Emerald Lake Hills area, according to the Office of Emergency Services.

Residents are advised not to approach mountain lions, to avoid hiking or jogging when the cats are most active -- at dawn, dusk and night -- and to keep a close watch on small children.

Mountain lions generally try to avoid confrontation, but residents who encounter the animal should not flee, but rather face the animal, make noise and try to appear larger with arm waving.
