They said people should be aware of their surroundings, watch out for pets and children, avoid feeding deer and refrain from approaching the big cats if spotted in any area.

The City of San Mateo also tweeted an alert, saying as the weather gets warmer, "we'll see more of our local wildlife taking chances closer to humans."
