They said he would get a quick health check-up and be tagged, before being released back in the mountains.

Saw this story on the a.m. news. I'm so glad they were able to relocate and release him!

Glendale is really close to where I live.

"Oh, you beautiful precious sweetheart. How did you get here? Oh, you're looking at me. You know I love love you. You are so beautiful. You are as much a soul as I am. God made you. God loves you. You can pray to God and he will hear you."

"Oh, you're walking toward me. Come on, darling. You animals are soooo psychic. You know I fight for you,. Ah, you're so beautiful. May I hug you?"

"Ah, I wonder, would Care2 believe this?'

Well, I can dream, can't I?

"Oh, you kissed me. May I kiss you back."

just hope he doesn't wander back into town....would've been better if they relocated him to a more remote area. generally, if they appear twice......don't want to think about it. if they are wandering into town, the prey in the hills must be running thin. happens near where i live, too, and you hate to think that any of them might die simply because the drought conditions we created forced them into our environs (which we stole from them.)

The cat looks as if it's in the prime of it's life. I hope it's going to be OK.

Now that wasn't too difficult for officers to do - tranquilize and relocate. Which makes the shootings of two small cubs not long ago all the more deplorable. Relocation is always tricky because animals can travel far. Coyotes can travel 50 miles in a night, and imagine mountain lions have a large range. Be well, mate and thrive !

At least the Glendale police had the sense no to shoot it, as is typical of the police.

Yea. The sooner he is returned to the wild the better.

He must've smelled the infestation of liberals in Glendale and come down to cull the population.

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted. Poor lions, we have taken their habitat away, and they have no where to go. This could get ugly for us and them, especially them.
