Thankfully....they didn't shoot this beautiful mountain lion. Glad to read that they will release it back into it's natural environment. Thanks, Cher for this.

I think they were patient and intelligent with the animal. I feel sorry for the housecat but it should have been inside. At least the cat and the raccoon both died from a natural preditor instead of vicious humans.

"House cats" belong in HOUSES...not outdoors!

Mountain lions deserve a second chance.....

Thankfully, the animal was just not shot, and be done with it - which it seems is the most common practice .

Noted, twittered and google shared. I find the image of the lion hanging by it's feet a bit disturbing. I am glad they are going to relocate the lion rather kill it which so often seems the case. Thanks Cher

"The radio collar also needed to be replaced because its GPS tracking system wasn't working anymore, Churchill said."

As soon as the radio collar is replaced, the cat will be released to another area. Sounds good to me.

Ty, Cher.

So glad they didn't kill it, and are relocating it to the wilds. Thanks, my friend.

From the jaguar to the puma to the ocelot and the margay we have so many beautiful cats; it would be a shame to lose them due to loss of habitat and just plain laziness.
