Mountain Lion Spotted With Cub In Portola Valley

PORTOLA VALLEY (CBS SF) – A mountain lion with a cub was seen in Portola Valley on Wednesday night, San Mateo County emergency officials said.

The cats were seen near the driveway of a property under construction in the 5900 block of Alpine Road around 8 p.m., officials said.

Residents are advised to never approach a mountain lion or go near a mountain lion cub.

Most mountain lions avoid confrontation with humans.

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.
