A deer carcass was found Friday morning (April 24) in a driveway of a home in the 1100 block of Westridge Drive in Portola Valley, the Sheriff's Office reported. Deputies said they think the deer was killed by a mountain lion.
Here are tips for what to do if you see a mountain lion:
● Do not approach it, especially one that is feeding or with offspring. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation.
● Avoid hiking or jogging when mountain lions are most active dawn, dusk, and at night.
● Keep a close watch on small children.
● If you encounter a mountain lion, do not run; instead, face the animal, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms; throw rocks or other objects.. Pick up small children.
