A mountain lion cornered by a game warden near a San Francisco playground and shot with a tranquilizer gun on Friday has been fitted with a Global Positioning System collar and is ready to go back into the wild.

A San Francisco resident on Friday reported seeing a mountain lion sleeping in the Diamond Heights neighborhood.

Police and animal control responded to the area of Diamond Heights Boulevard and Duncan Street next to Glen Canyon Park after members of the Diamond Heights Village Association first spotted the cat, Peter Fimrite wrote.

Police, officers from the San Francisco Animal Care and Control and the Department of Fish and Wildlife were working to capture the animal. By 2 p.m., the mountain lion had been loaded onto a truck, its paws secured with straps and a black mask over its eyes. It remains unknown if they are two different animals or the same one doubling back.

So far there is no word on where the Department of Fish and Wildlife will be taking the big cat.

It is estimated that between 4,000 and 6,000 mountain lions are now in California, and their territory can extend from 16 to 640 sq.km, according to wildlife officials.
