Mountain Lion Takes A Trip Through Orange County Shopping Center

Here’s more on the feline intruder from CBS Los Angeles (also video here):

The mountain lion was seen swimming in Orange County over the weekend and appears to have been tracked down to Irvine.

Animal control and law enforcement initially tried to sedate the mountain lion but failed. The animal then ran into a nearby business.

“When I first looked up I saw a cat hit the door, hit the partition, and wander through,” said Mark Waterhouse an employee of the business.

California Department of Fish and Wildlife officers and animal control were able to tranquilize the lion, which is now in CDFW’s care.
