Speaking of Crystal Springs, this is some story:

A juvenile mountain lion that managed to make its way into a quiet San Mateo neighborhood was safely captured and released after dozens of police and wildlife officials shut down an entire residential block to search for the animal Monday afternoon.

The approximately 2-year-old, 90-pound lion that was about 5 or 6 feet long, was spotted three times throughout the day before officials were finally able to contain and tranquilize it in a resident’s backyard on the 900 block of Palm Avenue, immediately south of Central Park.

“San Mateo police were first on scene and they were terrific, they handled it very well,” said Andre Hughan, a spokesman with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. “It is very unusual to see a lion this far in town.”


ps. I don't know where to sign-up, resident.
