Oakland Zoo posted a video on Twitter showing the animal being removed. The United States school was closed down after a mountain lion attacked it. Local officials stated that mountain lions often roam around the area near the school. However, they would never enter a classroom. The male mountain lion that was found in the classroom was identified as a 6–8 month-old male cub.
Oakland Zoo posted a video on Twitter showing the animal being removed. They wrote, “We just received another mountain lion rescue.” The Pescadero High School found the 6-8 month-old male. “Students and staff were all safe and were dismissed from school at that time.”
“The mountain lion was found hiding under a desk in a classroom. @CaliforniaDFW was called to administer the medication and bring the mountain lion to us.
Dr. Herman and her staff examined the mountain lion at our veterinary clinic. He has a severely fractured tooth and will need to have it extracted. He will be transferred to an accredited zoo at the Oakland Zoo’s discretion. We will continue to take care of him until then.”
According to the Sherriff’s Office, an alert teacher had closed the door to keep the mountain lion in an English classroom. This is where it spent most of its time before being rescued.
abc7news said that the animal had a significant impact on school activities, as this week was supposed to be graduation week for many students at the middle school.
