Mountain Lion Alert

April 8, 2016 - ALERT: Mountain Lion Spotted Near Campus - A mountain lion was believed to be spotted in the hills behind the Center for Children and Families this afternoon. University Police have notified the California Department of Fish and Game.

Please use extra caution when walking on campus particularly at night or in the early morning hours. Do not walk alone. If you see the mountain lion, contact University Police immediately. For the fastest possible police response, program 760-750-4567 into your cell phones. Do not approach the animal. If you are confronted by the mountain lion, DO NOT RUN, as this will stimulate the mountain lion’s instinct to chase. Make yourself appear as large as possible, keep intense eye contact, wave your arms and make noise.
