Mountain lion sighted in Woodside

 

A mountain lion was seen in the vicinity of Farm Road and Woodview Lane in Woodside at approximately 3:30 a.m. Monday, March 21, the San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services reported.

The county Office of Emergency Services offers these tips:

● If you see a mountain lion, don't approach it and call 911,

● 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.

Remember if you see a Mountain Lion at 3:30 a.m. don't call 911, just go back to bed. This is the Mountain Lions time to be out. Another lucky sighting. Time for an inferred camera.

Isn't that Portola Valley, and not far from the deer kill at Woodside Priory School, which, as we all know, is not in Woodside at all.
