Mountain lion spotted along Pacifica foothills
PACIFICA -- A mountain lion was spotted near a park in the Pacifica foothills this morning, according to San Mateo County emergency officials.
The big cat was seen walking along a trail about two miles from the entrance to San Pedro Valley Park, which is on Oddstad Boulevard, officials said.
Residents are advised never to approach a mountain lion, and anyone who encounters a mountain lion should face the animal, make noise, and try to appear larger by waving one's arms and throwing rocks, emergency officials said.
Most mountain lions avoid confrontation.
