Two reports were issued Tuesday for mountain lion sightings in
Woodside, just four miles apart from one another, the San Mateo County Office
of Emergency Services reported.
The first sighting occurred in the 400 block of Raymundo Drive
just after 6 a.m. when a cat was seen in the area, emergency officials
A second report occurred Tuesday at 11:20 p.m. when security staff
at a home in the 700 block of Mountain Home Road reported seeing the animal.
Responding officials were unable to locate it.
Although nearly 17 hours difference, the two locations where the
cats were reported are just about four miles apart with Canada Road linking
the two wooded areas.
Emergency officials warn residents who might come in contact with
the wild cats to not run from them. Instead, officials advise people to look
big and make noise and also throw rocks or other objects near the animal to
scare it away.
Keep a close eye on small children, officials report.
