Mountain lion seen walking the links

 

A mountain lion was seen walking the links on a golf course in unincorporated Burlingame on Sunday morning (July 31), San Mateo County officials said.

The big cat was spotted at about 4:25 a.m. walking across Crystal Springs Golf Course, which borders the San Francisco State Fish and Game Wildlife Refuge west of Skyline Boulevard, officials said.

Game officials warn golfers and hikers alike to never approach a mountain lion, especially those that appear to be feeding or accompanied by offspring. They shouldn't run, either, but face it, make lots of noise, and try to appear bigger by waving arms.

Always keep a close eye on children and pick them up immediately if an encounter with a mountain lion occurs.

He couldn't get a cart or a caddy?
