    A medium-sized mountain lion was spotted in San Mateo County Monday morning, according to officials.

    A citizen said they saw the feline walking along Woodside Road near Portola Road, officials said.

    The mountain lion, which did not appear to be injured or aggressive, was eventually scared off and ran up a nearby hillside, according to officials.

    The sighting comes days after the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department tranquilized and captured a mountain lion in the Diamond Heights neighborhood.
