Mountain Lion Sighted in San Carlos Monday Afternoon

Sighting took place at approximately 2 p.m.

A mountain lion was spotted in San Carlos Monday afternoon, San Mateo County officials said.

The animal was spotted at around 2 p.m. near the 100 block of Exeter Drive.

Residents are advised not to hike or jog when mountain lions are most active -- at dawn, dusk and night, county officials said.

Residents are also reminded to keep an eye on small children.

Do not run if a mountain lion is spotted, emergency officials advised. Instead, face the animal, make noise and try to appear bigger by waving arms and throwing objects.

Do not approach a mountain lion, especially if the animal is feeding or with offspring.
