Here is a reminder from the Daily Journal article to pay attention when walking at night locally. Park school is only three blocks from my dog walking route and mountain lions have a range of 10 to 370 square miles
A mountain lion was seen casually strolling through a residential neighborhood and near an elementary school near the northern border of San Mateo on Friday night, police said. Police said they were first called to the area of Bellevue Avenue and Clark Drive in the San Mateo Park neighborhood around 10:15 p.m. Friday on a report of a possible mountain lion sighting.
Witnesses told police they had seen the cat walking west on the 100 block of West Poplar Avenue. They described it as weighing around 100 pounds. Police received a second report around 11:30 p.m. about a mountain lion walking through the campus gate of Park School at 161 Clark Drive, a short distance from the first reported sighting.
Head's up out there!
