Two more mountain lion sightings in Woodside

 

Two more mountain lions were spotted in Woodside, one at 2:45 a.m. today near Woodside and Whiskey Hill roads, and another around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday near the 100 block of Otis Avenue.

With the Otis Avenue sighting, residents in the immediate area were advised to "shelter in place" until further notice. About 45 minutes later, county emergency officials sent out an advisory that the cat "was allowed by members of the State Fish and Game Department to return to its habitat."

The county office of emergency services recommends that residents keep a close watch on small children and avoid hiking or jogging at dawn, dusk or night, when mountain lions are most active.

Another mountain lion was spotted at the top of California Way on Saturday around noon. It was reported to the sheriff's dept, but no shelter in place calls were sent out. A deputy did a drive by, but that was apparently the extent of their effort.
