According to a release from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Command staff, a mountain lion was seen Monday night in the vicinity of Olive Hill Lane and Albion Avenue in Woodside. The animal was seen at approximately 9:30 p.m.
Sheriff's officials say that 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.
Here are a few tips:
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.
