Lost mountain lion captured in San Francisco's most urban neighborhood

June 18, 2020 / sfgate.com

A young mountain lion was captured in San Francisco's Mission Bay—among the city's most urban neighborhoods--Thursday morning, KCBS Radio reported.

Officers from S.F. Animal Care and Control and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife cornered the disoriented animal near Fourth and Channel streets and used a large net to seize it.

"They'll be taking off to place it in the wild," SFACC Executive Director Virginia Donohue told KCBS.

Donohue said the goal was to capture the animal without tranquilizing it because young cats can die in the sedating process.

*Whew!* So happy that ended safely for the cat. It's been spotted wandering around The City for days.

3. I believe SF is 2nd to NYC as the most densely populated city in the U.S.

This cat has been traversing Russian Hill, the Embarcadero and financial district.

I'll try not to let my imagination run wild tonight when I take the dog out to the backyard.

Have you heard about our coyotes yet?
