Police Capture Mountain Lion Roaming San Francisco
KRON ^ | November 10, 2017 | Julianne Herrera

Posted on 11/10/2017 2:42:28 PM PST by nickcarraway

A mountain lion that was spotted within San Francisco city limits Friday morning has been caught, according to San Francisco Police Department.

The wild cat was reported around 9:49 a.m. in a wooded area on the 5100 block of Diamond Heights Blvd.

Police and Animal Care and Control responded, but were not able to catch the mountain lion.

A crew from California Fish and Game has since taken over the situation.

Police shut down Diamond Heights Boulevard as they searched for the big cat.

Just before 2 p.m., they found the mountain lion and tranquilized it.

No further details are available at this time.

Police are asking anyone who sees a mountain lion in their neighborhood please call 9-1-1 or the business line at (650) 947-2770.

Mountain lions are generally solitary and avoid people. To help prevent conflicts with these wild animals, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife suggests the following:

If you encounter a mountain lion, do not run; instead, face the animal, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms; throw rocks or other objects. Pick up small children. If attacked, fight back.

GBC advice. Always travel in pairs, with someone considerably slower than yourself.

We have a large bobcat in our neighborhood causing our formerly indoor outdoor cat to refuse to go outside and worse, to spray. So he goes to the barn. 😢

For a very moment there I thought the writer was suggesting to pick up small children and throw them to the lion.

An omen and a sign of the desolation the city of San Francisco is going to suffer.

The mountain lion was reportedly feeling fabulous and was wearing a stunning little outfit of matching fur.

At least they didn’t just kill it. Credit where it’s due.

From the article, “If attacked, fight back”. Not sure why but this made me laugh. Do they really think they have to tell someone this... oh yeah.. SF. Never mind... :)

I hope Wis and Chicago learn that they don’t have to kill big cats automatically. It is so sad. Just tranquilize them and send them back to where they belong.

Pumas have proven to be adaptable to new surroundings. They are not instinctively hostile toward humans, merely competitors.
