Mountain Lion Sighting Reported in San Mateo County

SAN CARLOS (KRON) — San Mateo County officials are warning the public about a mountain lion sighting reported Thursday night in San Carlos.

A resident saw the lion on the side of the road straddling a dead dear at about 10:23 p.m. in the 300 block Devonshire Boulevard.

Officials searched for the lion but never found it.

On Wednesday, wildlife officials in Cupertino shot and killed a mountain that mauled a 6-year-old boy on Sunday. The boy is recovering from injuries suffered to his head and neck.

Hikers and joggers should avoid those activities at dawn, dusk and at night in areas where mountain lions may be.

Officials said people who encounter a mountain lion should not run but should face the animal, make noise, try looking bigger by waving their arms, and throw rocks or other objects.
