Mountain lion sightings reported hours apart
SAN MATEO COUNTY, Calif. -- In a matter of hours two mountain lions were spotted in different parts of San Mateo County Monday night, San Mateo County emergency officials said.
The first sighting was around 7 p.m. near state Highway 92 just east of state Highway 35, emergency officials said.
About four hours later and less than 15 miles away around 11:15 p.m. a big cat was seen just east of Lindenbrook Road in Woodside.
Residents are advised to never approach a mountain lion.
Anyone who encounters a mountain lion should face the animal, make noise, and try to appear larger by waving arms and throwing rocks, emergency officials said. Small children should be picked up.
