A Gold Cross ambulance crew reported seeing a mountain lion in the area.  Officers located and corned the animal at 15 South 500 East.  The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) responded and called out a biologist to tranquilize the animal.  DWR used a tranquilizer which caused the animal to charge one of the officers.  The animal was put down at that point.  DWR took custody of the carcass.
