A mountain lion was spotted Saturday morning in Woodside, San Mateo County officials said.
It was seen at about 7 a.m. in the area of the 700 block of West Glen Way.
Residents are advised not to hike or jog when mountain lions are most active at dawn, dusk or night. They should also keep an eye on small children.
Anyone who encounters a mountain lion should pick up children, face the animal, make noise, and try to look bigger by waving the arms and throwing rocks.
