Forest officials say they're posting education and cautionary signs because they've received a report of a possible sighting.

According to forest officials, mountain lions tend to spend daytime hours in dense cover and be out more at dawn and dusk.

They recommend that anybody encountering a mountain lion to back away slowly while continuing to look as big and intimidating as possible and while leaving the lion avenues of escape.
