Two mountain lion sightings in Woodside
WOODSIDE, Calif. -- A mountain lion sighting was reported in Woodside early Friday morning, the second such sighting in about six hours, according to San Mateo County emergency officials.
The cougar was spotted at about 12:05 a.m. in the vicinity of High and Woodside roads, officials said.
