Two mountain lion cubs made their second appearance in less than 24 hours in Half Moon Bay on Saturday afternoon, San Mateo county emergency officials said.
The pair of cubs were seen at 12:31 p.m. near San Benito and Miramontes
streets, emergency officials said.
The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office and state Department of Fish
and Game are responding to the sighting, officials said.
There was a previous sighting of the two cubs Friday evening about a block away, in the 800 block of Correas Street around 5:45 p.m., emergency officials said.
Officials warn, if you see a mountain lion, do not approach it - especially one that is feeding or with offspring. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation.
Officials offer these tips:
- Avoid hiking or jogging when mountain lions are most active—dawn, dusk, and at night.
- Keep a close watch on small children.
- If you encounter a mountain lion, do not run; instead, face the animal, make noise, try to look bigger by waving your arms, and throw rocks or other objects.
- Pick up small children.
