Possible mountain lion sighting in Daly City

December 8, 2008 9:37:37 PM PST
Residents in the area of Oceanside Drive, Menlo Avenue and Northridge Drive said two large cats were seen around 4:50 p.m., according to police.

Officers went to the location, but did not spot a mountain lion.

Police contacted the California Department of Fish and Game, which advised it is rare for two mountain lions to travel together. Fish and Game said the residents may have seen bobcats, which are common in cliff areas, according to police.

Residents who spot such an animal are being warned to not approach the cat and instead call Daly City police at (650) 991-8092. Additionally, residents are advised to bring pets in for the night and not leave any food outside.

Fish and Game will investigate the sighting during daylight Tuesday, police said.
