Report of mountain lion sighting in Woodside

 

A mountain lion was spotted in Woodside Tuesday night in the hills above Interstate Highway 280, emergency officials said.

The big cat was seen at about 8:20 p.m. in the vicinity of Albion Avenue and Olive Hill Lane.

Residents are advised not to approach mountain lions, and should avoid hiking or jogging at dawn, dusk, and night, when the animals are most active.

If a mountain lion is encountered, emergency officials advise residents to try to appear large and make noise.
