Police tranquilized a mountain lion wandering around a residential neighborhood in Glendale.
The mountain lion was spotted by one homeowner who called 911 but the large cat jumped into another yard and hid under a patio, where officers tranquillized it.
Experts say it may have been looking for water because of how dry it's been.
The animal will be checked out, tagged and returned to the wild.
