Mountain lion spotted in Woodside

Cat seen early Monday morning near Portola Road

A mountain lion was seen early Monday morning (Aug. 1) in Woodside, San Mateo County emergency officials said.

The cat was spotted at about 1:20 a.m. in the area of Mountain Home and Portola roads.

Residents are advised to keep an eye on small children and avoid hiking or jogging at dawn, dusk or night when mountain lions are most active.

Anyone who encounters a mountain lion should face the animal, make noise, and try to appear larger by waving arms and throwing rocks, emergency officials said.

Isn't that normally the time that cats are up and about, and humans are sleeping???
