Rancho San Antonio Park Closed Due to Mountain Lions

Rancho San Antonio County Park near Cupertino is closed after mountain lions were spotted Friday afternoon.

The district released video of one recent encounter showing at least three big cats on or near a trail in Rancho San Antonio.

Anyone who sees mountain lions is advised not to approach them. Stand tall, face the animals, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms or throwing objects, the district said.

Also, pick up small children and back away slowly. Do not remain in the area.
