City News
  • Mountain Lion Sightings in Vicinity of Crespi Drive This Week - There were two recent mountain lion sightings in Pacifica: the first on November 13 at 3:45 pm in a backyard in the 900 block of Alta Vista, and the second on November 15 at 8:00 am in a wooded area in the 1200 block of Crespi Drive. In both incidents, the animals were not aggressive and ran away shortly after being spotted. The sightings were reported to the Pacifica Police Department. 

    Keep these important safety tips in mind with respect to mountain lions: If you see a mountain lion, DO NOT APPROACH IT and do not run; instead face the animal, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms; throw rock or other objects. Pick up small children. Keep all pets and pet food indoors at night. Do not feed deer; it is illegal and will attract mountain lions. Avoid hiking or jogging through wooded areas at times when mountain lions are most active – dawn, dusk or at night.  See this informational brochure on mountain lions.
