Mountain lion tranquilized, captured after roaming through a neighborhood in Azusa, California.

The authorities in Southern California had to tranquilize a mountain lion after it was found roaming through backyards on Monday morning.

The Azusa Police Department said in a Facebook post, the animal was spotted in the residential area on the 600 block of Virginia Ann Drive around 7 o’clock in the morning, located approximately 25 km east of downtown Los Angeles.

The area was flooded with law enforcement and wildlife officials, who went door-to-door to warn residents of the visitor in their neighborhood. A drone was also used by the police to track the lion behind the houses.
