MILLBREA, Calif. -- A mountain lion has been spotted in Millbrae, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

The sighting occurred Friday morning in the area of the Green Hills Golf Course at 500 Luderman Lane.

People who come across mountain lions should not approach them, especially if the animal is feeding or with its young, sheriff's officials said.

Hikers and joggers in areas where mountain lions may be should avoid those activities at dawn, dusk and at night, when the animals are most active.

People who encounter a mountain lion should face the animal, make noise, try to look bigger by waving their arms and throw rocks or other objects.
