Residents reported seeing a mountain lion in the neighborhood, initial officers and Division of Wildlife Resource officers were unable to locate the lion. Later in the day more reports came in about the lion being behind a garage. DWR officers attempted to use a dart gun to subdue the lion. The lion fled the area and a second dart was attempted and again the lion fled. The third dart found its mark and the lion fled again. A citizen saw the lion walking down the sidewalk at 1600 South Wasatch Drive and then walked into the yard at 1627 South Wasatch. Officers responded and found the lion sleeping in some bushes. The lion was taken into custody and will be relocated by DWR.
