Mountain lion in California caught, after it lead official on a hunt


A mountain lion on the loose in California was captured.

Fish and Wildlife personnel managed to hit the wild animal with a tranquilizer gun, that led them to get close enough to secure it. The animal had been spotted in several different areas of the city throughout the day.

Officials said the big cat - which weighed 60 to 80 pounds - was not aggressive but was afraid and just wanted to get away! The mountain lion was returned to a suitable habitat.
