A Chico woman and her daughter told authorities they were stalked by a mountain lion near Monkey Face in Upper Bidwell Park Sunday evening.

Chico Police responded to the scene and couldn't locate the mountain lion, they say it is likely the mountain lion was stalking their dog.

The two women were able to blend in with a larger group of people, and wildlife officials say if you encounter a mountain lion don't run, instead raise your arms and make yourself appear as large and as intimidating as possible. Making a lot of noise may also help scare the mountain lion away.
