A juvenile mountain lion was shot by police after being shocked by a tranquillizer dart and lunging at an officer in a suburban area. He later died in surgery at a California zoo.
According to zoo spokeswoman Erin Harrison, a year-old lion was brought to the Oakland Zoo by vets who prepared it for an emergency operation.
A resident in Hollister, about 100 miles south of San Francisco, called the police at 4:42 a.m. after noticing the lion on their front porch.
According to authorities, the lion charged out of a bush toward a police officer as California Department of Fish and Wildlife personnel attempted to tranquillize it.
According to the police statement, two officers fired their firearms at the mountain lion out of concern for the officer's life and safety.
The cops fired their weapons at the scene because they "could not put the life of the animal above human life."
