Two mountain lions sightings in Woodside


San Mateo County emergency officials said they received two reports of mountain lions sightings in Woodside, one on Saturday night and one early Sunday.

On Saturday night, a mountain lion was reported seen at about 9:15 p.m. near 386 Raymundo Drive.

On Sunday morning, a mountain lion was reported seen at around 4:45 a.m. in the vicinity of Albion Avenue and Olive Hill Lane.

In addition, Stanford University officials announced Friday that mountain-lion tracks were found in the Stanford Golf Course area.

Residents who see a mountain lion are advised not to approach it, especially if the cat is feeding or with offspring.

The San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services recommends that people keep a close watch on small children and avoid hiking or jogging at dawn, dusk, or night, when the animals are most active.
