When the Palisade Police Department arrived to check on a big cat who refused to come out from under the stairs of an apartment building, they decided it was time to call in reinforcements.

The cat in question was no overly large house cat, it was a mountain lion. Fortunately, Colorado Parks and Wildlife were available and had experience dealing with really big kitties.

After tranquilizing the unlikely visitor, they gave him a ride to a safe and comfortable place to sleep it off while arrangements were made to get this big kitty home.
