A resident reported seeing a mountain lion in the vicinity of unit block of Bel Roche Court in Palomar Park.
Officials warn residents not to approach a mountain lion it they spot one, especially one that is feeding or with offspring. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation.
Here are a few tips regarding mountain lions:
- 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.
