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.
