A mountain lion was spotted Wednesday night just outside of Woodside, San Mateo County emergency officials said.
The big cat was seen in the 17000 block of Skyline Boulevard, just north of the state Highway 84 and Skyline Boulevard intersection around 8 p.m., emergency officials said.
Residents who see a mountain lion are advised to never approach the animal.
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.
