A possible mountain Lion sighting in the 300 block of Fletcher Drive at Ridgeview Drive.  

The sighting was called in by resident who noticed a large tan cat with a long tail, which is consistent with the primary characteristics of a mountain lion.

Fish and Game was contacted and advised of the sighting.

If you see a mountain lion, take these additional precautions:

  • Do Not Run.
  • Shout in a loud voice and wave your arms or hold open your coat to appear large and threatening.
  • Maintain eye contact and do not crouch down.
  • Throw sticks or rocks.
  • If an attack occurs, fight back.

If you see a mountain lion, please contact the Atherton Police Department @ (650) 688-6500.
