Woodside: report of mountain lion sighting

 

Someone reported spotting a mountain lion in a residential area near 350 Jane Road in Woodside at about 7:15 p.m. Sunday, San Mateo County emergency officials said Monday.

Mountain lions do not tend to confront humans, but authorities recommend that residents avoid hiking or jogging at dawn, dusk and at night, when the animals are most active.

In the event of a mountain lion encounter, wildlife officials recommend facing the animal, making noise, trying to appear larger by waving arms, and throwing rocks or other objects.

More information on mountain lions is available through the state Department of Fish and Game at www.keepmewild.org.
