When firefighters in Hesperia, California got a report that a cat was stuck up a tree, they didn’t expect to see a mountain lion dangling 50 feet in the air. After tranquilizing the animal, firefighters were able to lower it in a harness to the ground.

Officials said they couldn’t leave the mountain lion in the tree for public safety, so hopefully they managed to release it in the wild so it can live a happy life far away from humans. Cats may be adorable but adopting a mountain lion is probably going too far.
