People who live in San Carlos are on the lookout for a mountain lion that wandered out of the hills and into a residential neighborhood on Sunday.

The mountain lion was spotted at Elizabeth Street and Tamarack Avenue around 10:30 Sunday night.

The animals are most active at night and around sunrise and sunset.

Several mountain lions have been seen recently in Emerald Hills, but this one ventured into a lower-lying neighborhood.
