A mountain lion was captured Thursday in a neighborhood in Southern California, Thursday, December 12.

Police and wildfire officers responded around dawn in Simi Valley, where people were reporting a cougar prowling on properties.

The lion was tranquilized and outfitted with a tracking collar that scientists will use to study the animal, according to the National Park Service.

The lion will be released back into the mountains northwest of Los Angeles. (AP)
