Two mountain lion cubs were spotted in Half Moon Bay on Friday evening, according to San Mateo County emergency officials.
The cubs were sighted in the 800 block of Correas Avenue at about 5:45 p.m. Sheriff's officials and Animal Control responded to the scene.
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.
Here are a few 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 and try to look bigger by waving your arms; throw rocks or other objects.
- Pick up small children.
