SAN MATEO (CBS SF) — A cat found injured in El Granada on Friday afternoon had wounds consistent with a mountain lion attack, San Mateo County emergency services officials announced Saturday.
Around 3 p.m. Friday, the house cat was attacked by a mountain lion on the street in the 400 block of Bridgeport Drive of the Clipper Ridge neighborhood, county emergency officials said.
There were no reports of a mountain lion sighting, but a veterinarian who treated the cat determined it suffered wounds from a mountain lion attack, according to county emergency officials.
Personnel from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area have been notified, county emergency officials said.
The public is being asked to keep a watchful eye over pets and children due to a recent increase in mountain lion activity in the county’s rural and semi-rural areas, according to county emergency officials.
