Dead deer indicates mountain lion activity in Hillsborough
April 08, 2014, 05:00 AM

Police found a dead deer that showed signs of having been killed by a mountain lion in Hillsborough early Monday morning.

The dead deer was found in the 1400 block of Tartan Trail, police said.

Mountain lion activity is not uncommon in Hillsborough and San Mateo County, according to Hillsborough police Sgt. Nelson Corteway.

However, mountain lions are solitary and rarely attack people, Corteway said.

Police advise residents to avoid hiking or jogging during mountain lions’ active hours of dawn, dusk and nighttime.

If someone does see a mountain lion, they are advised to not run or approach it. People should stand still, face the mountain lion, make noise, wave their arms, throw rocks or other objects and pick up small children.

Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation with people, according to Corteway.

Do you think electronic cigarettes should be prohibited in the same places cigarettes are?

Yes, we don't know the dangers
No, they are harmless to others
Maybe, but they're still safe
We should do what we can to encourage use since they're less harmfull than cigarettes
Who cares, they're lame
