A joint press release of the Presidio Trust, the National Park Service, and San Francisco Animal Care and Control
The animal appears to be moving south and has not been seen since July 3. While there have been no Mountain Lion sightings in San Francisco in many years, and none this far north, sightings regularly occur throughout undeveloped areas of Marin and San Mateo.
The Presidio Trust, National Park Service, and San Francisco Animal Care and Control are working closely to monitor and manage the issue and to keep the community informed. Mountain Lions are naturally wary of humans and encounters between people and Mountain Lions are very rare.
The three agencies would like to remind the public of the following Mountain Lion safety guidelines:
If the Mountain Lion appears threatening:
Be especially mindful between dusk and dawn. Be sure to keep pets on leash at all times.
