Two reported mountain lion sightings at college

Repored sightings were early Tuesday morning

Two reports of mountain lion sightings at Canada College in Woodside were received early Tuesday morning (Aug. 30), San Mateo County emergency officials said.

A cat was reportedly first seen on the north side of Canada College at 4200 Farm Hill Blvd. at 5 a.m. and then again at 6:30 a.m. running into a nearby canyon, county officials said.

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

Other standard advice: Keep an eye on small children. Don't run if a mountain lion is spotted. Rather, face the animal, make noise and try to appear bigger by waving arms and throwing objects.

County officials warn hikers not to approach a mountain lion, especially if the animal is feeding or with offspring.
