A mountain lion was spotted in Woodside, near Interstate Highway 280, on Saturday night, emergency officials said.
The cougar was seen at about 9:15 p.m. near 386 Raymundo Drive. The sighting marks the second big cat spotted in the town this month.
In addition, Stanford University officials announced Friday that mountain-lion tracks were found in the Stanford Golf Course area -- adding a new course hazard for golfers to consider.
Residents who see a mountain lion are advised not to approach it, especially if the cat is feeding or has cubs.
The San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services recommends that people keep a close watch on small children and avoid hiking or jogging at
dawn, dusk or night, when the lions are most active.
