Mountain lion kills deer near San Mateo home
July 01, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

A San Mateo resident reported seeing a mountain lion attacking a deer in a creek bed behind their home on Fernwood Street in the Hillsdale/Beresford neighborhood around 1 a.m. Tuesday, according to San Mateo police.

When police responded they found a deceased deer but the alleged mountain lion was gone. Police remind residents that while it’s rare for a mountain lion to confront humans, people should never approach one and instead of running, face the animal, make noise, wave one’s arms and throw rocks or other objects at the animal, according to police. People should also avoid jogging or hiking in wooded areas at dawn, dusk or night as that’s when mountain lions are most active, according to police.
