The mountain lion sighting was reported around 8:30 a.m. south of the Canada Cove Mobile Home Park on El Paseo, emergency officials said.

Anyone who encounters a mountain lion should not run from the animal, and should not crouch or bend down, but rather try to appear larger, and make noise.

Mountain lions are timid and typically do not seek out people. However, if a mountain lion attacks, wildlife officials advise fighting back.
