UPDATE 4:50 p.m.
The mountain lion that had been resting in a backyard in the 3300 block of Thelma Street for a few hours is finally on his way to the Angeles National Forest.
Calls began coming into the Glendale Police Department of mountain lion sightings as early as 6 a.m., said Lt. Bruce Fox.
At about 1:30p.m. a call came in about a mountain lion in the Thelma Street neighborhood. It had jumped over a fence into the backyard of a home where it found a shady tree in rest under.
Glendale police asked neighbors to stay in their homes while the Department of Fish and Game arrived and began to work on tranquilizing the cat.
Marty Wall from Fish and Game shot one tranquilizer into the mountain lion who then jumped over a fence and came to rest under a wooden patio in the 3300 block of Fairmount Avenue.
It took some time but after a few more tranquilizer darts Fish and Game, with the help of Glendale Fire Department and GPD were able to drag the cat out from under the patio and carry it into a waiting truck.
The mountain lion will be tagged and released in the Angeles National Forest.
