Mountain lion spotted in Pacifica

A wild mountain lion was spotted on Manzanita Drive in Pacifica at 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

The lion was not aggressive, and appeared to be in good health. It ran away shortly after it was spotted, and although officers reported to the scene, they did not locate it.

San Mateo County’s Alert System sent out a notification to residents, reminding them of rules to follow when encountering mountain lions. Although they rarely approach humans, if you do spot one you should never approach it. Face the animal, make noise, throw rocks, and try to look bigger by waving your arms.

Be aware of all small children in the area, and keep pets and pet food indoors at night.
