According to ABC7's media partner, the Mercury News, workers from the Puma Project evaluated the mountain lion.

They fitted the animal with a GPS collar to track its movements once it is released back into the wild.

Two schools were briefly locked down and people nearby were asked to shelter in place while the mountain lion was in the tree.
