This isn’t our neighborhood but I thought you early morning runners and bikers might appreciate a heads up.

At About 11 pm on Sunday night June 5, a mountain lion was seen in the vicinity of Laurel Creek Drive and W. Hillsdale Boulevard.
If you see a mountain lion DO NOT APPROACH IT, especially one that is feeding or with offspring. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation.
Here are a few tips:
Avoid hiking or jogging when mountain lions are most active—dawn, dusk at night.
Keep a close watch on small children.
If you encounter a mountain lion, do not run; instead, face the animal, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms; throw rocks or other objects.
Pick up small children.
