Mountain lion spotted at Canada College
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- A mountain lion was spotted twice at a Redwood City community college campus early Tuesday morning, San Mateo County emergency officials said.
The cat was first seen on the north side of Canada College at 4200 Farm Hill Blvd. at 5 a.m. and then again at 6:30 a.m. running into a nearby canyon.
Residents are advised not to hike or jog when mountain lions are most active -- at dawn, dusk and night, emergency officials said.
Residents are also reminded to keep an eye on small children and not to run if a mountain lion is spotted, but rather to face the animal, make noise and try to appear bigger by waving arms and throwing objects.
County officials warn hikers not approach a mountain lion, especially if the animal is feeding or with offspring.
