Possible Mountain Lion Sighting

Yesterday evening, between 10:00pm - 11:00pm, a mountain lion was possibly seen in the vicinity of Mission Blue Center (475 Mission Blue Dr.). A contractor who was cleaning the floors during that time reported the sighting to the Police Department after leaving the facility.

Mountain lions typically avoid people and would rather avoid a confrontation. But if you happen to see one, DO NOT APPROACH IT. If you ever come across one, do not run. Rather, you'd want to first face the animal, make noise, and wave your arms so that you appear bigger. For more information about mountain lions, click here.

News about the sighting was first delivered over SMC Alert. If you haven't already signed up to receive electronic messages sent to either your phone or e-mail (or, both), you can do so by visiting Get signed up, and get informed!
