Mountain lion spotted along Pacifica foothills

PACIFICA

The big cat was seen walking along a trail about two miles from the entrance to San Pedro Valley Park, which is on Oddstad Boulevard, officials said.

Residents are advised never to approach a mountain lion, and anyone who encounters a mountain lion should face the animal, make noise, and try to appear larger by waving one's arms and throwing rocks, emergency officials said.

Most mountain lions avoid confrontation.
