Mountain lion killed in suburban CA backyard
Authorities shot and killed a mountain lion they cornered in a backyard after it wandered into a Redwood City neighborhood Tuesday morning. The big cat, weighing between 100 and 150 pounds, was spotted earlier on a busy street near Sequoia Hospital. The sighting prompted authorities to alert the residents of about 600 homes to evacuate or stay inside. A house-by-house search led them to the animal. SF Chronicle.
