Wild Cat in Neighborhood Turns out to be Mountain Lion

No automatic alt text available.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that a mountain lion was captured in a Laredo subdivision on February 25.  The secretive cats are rarely seen in the wild – much less observed in urban areas.  The lion was tranquilized after being located in the Santa Rita subdivision.  The cat has been turned over to the State Game Warden who will assess its condition and likely release it back into the wild in a more remote location.
