LONGMONT, Colo. — This was quite a place to take a cat nap. And that was a big cat slumbering away.
The animal was spotted just before 5 p.m. Monday at the home in Longmont, Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesperson Jason Clay told the television station.
“This was the first report of a mountain lion in Longmont since May 2019,” Clay told KUSA. “It doesn’t mean there haven’t been mountain lions there before, it just means it hasn’t been reported to us.”
Officers from the Longmont Police Department helped wildlife officials tranquilize the mountain lion, KUSA reported. The animal was released in the Arapaho National Forest in northern Colorado, the television station reported.
