Possible mountain lion sighting in Portola Valley Wednesday night

 

A mountain lion was reportedly seen Wednesday night (Sept. 14) in Portola Valley, San Mateo County emergency officials said.

The animal was spotted near the 300 block of Willowbrook Drive shortly after 10 p.m.

Another sighting of a possible mountain lion was reported less than a mile away, near Alpine Road, at around 9:20 p.m. on Monday.

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.
