Mountain lion spotted in Portola Valley

 

A mountain lion was spotted in Portola Valley Wednesday morning, San Mateo County officials said.

The animal was spotted at about 8 a.m. near Pony Tracks Ranch at 499 Old Spanish Trail.

Residents are advised not to hike or jog when mountain lions are most active -- at dawn, dusk and night, county officials said.

Residents are also reminded to keep an eye on small children.

Do not run if a mountain lion is spotted, emergency officials advised. Instead, face the animal, make noise and try to appear bigger by waving arms and throwing objects.

Do not approach a mountain lion, especially if the animal is feeding or with offspring.
