A mountain lion sighting was reported in Woodside Sunday morning, according to San Mateo County emergency officials. 

The cat was spotted at about 9 a.m. in the vicinity of the 100 block of Phillip Road, emergency officials said. 

Residents who encounter a mountain lion are advised to not approach the animal, especially one that is feeding or with offspring. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation. It's also a good idea to avoid jogging when mountain lions are most active, including at dawn, dusk and at night.

It's Woodside. There are mountain lions. I hope no one with a gun responded to the fool who called the sighting in to "authorities." If you can't deal with living near wildlife that were there first, take your millions and buy a home somewhere other than Woodside.
