San Pedro Valley County Park: Mountain Lion Territory


A mountain lion was sighted walking along a trail in San Pedro Valley County Park in Linda Mar on November 25 at 8 a.m., approximately two miles into the park. If you see a mountain lion, DO NOT APPROACH IT, especially one that is feeding or with offspring. Most mountain lions try to avoid confrontation with humans. 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 and opening up your coat; throw rocks or other objects.
