MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (CNN/KTVU) — Authorities captured a mountain lion that was roaming the streets and neighborhoods of Mountain View, Calif.

Police started getting calls reporting the animal on the loose Tuesday.

The mountain lion eventually found itself trapped in an underground parking garage of a condominium complex.
