“The mountain lion is at the Tulsa Zoo. They say she had a lot of ticks on her but is otherwise healthy. They say she’s wary of humans but she did eat Monday. The zoo will do a DNA test to see where she is from.”

911 Call Of Mountain Lion In Tulsa
Reported by: Abbie Alford
When dispatchers picked up the phone about a possible mountain lion in a man’s tree in North Tulsa on Saturday the dispatcher didn’t know what to think.
FOX23 News took on the chase as police, zoo officials and Animal Control hunted down a mountain lion near North Quanah and East Pine.
There is a very nice photo of the cougar at the website.
As those of you who are following ews on this blog, other cougars have recently been documented in Oklahoma, Kansas, east Texas, and Missouri. We are working on confirming two recent remote camera photos from Arkansas also. Why shouldn’t this animal be re-released if she appears to be wild?
