Authorities say a mountain lion will probably moved to a state wildlife area after it was captured in the back yard of a Sonoma County home.

Deputies and biologists from the California Department of Fish and Game were called out to a home in the community of Aqua Caliente Thursday when a resident called to report a mountain lion sitting in a tree.

After deputies formed a perimeter around the cat, biologists shot it with a tranquilizer.

Once the woozy mountain lion came out of the tree, it was put it in a wooden box to be relocated.

Biologists have determined the mountain lion was a female, about two years old, weighing about 60 pounds.
