A mountain lion was seen in the near Wellington Drive and Shelford Avenue in the vicinity of Arguello Park at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies say that if residents see a mountain lion they should 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.
Pick up small children.
