Two mountain lions spotted in Woodside

 

Two mountain lions were seen near the west side entrance to Canada College in Woodside around 4:50 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 9, county officials said.

Officials advise that if you see a mountain lion, don't approach it, especially if it is feeding or with offspring. Mountain lions typically avoid confrontation.

Dan Bennett of the county Office of Emergency Services gives these tips:

● Avoid hiking or jogging when mountain lions are most active -- dawn, dusk, and at night.

● Keep a close watch on small children.

● If you encounter a mountain lion, do not run; instead, face the animal, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms; throw rocks or other objects. Pick up small children.
