(KUTV) A mountain lion is back in the wild tonight after exploring down into a Tooele County neighborhood.

According to officials, this is the time of year that cougars are sent off by their mothers to live on their own. Often times they walk out of the canyon and right into busy areas like this neighborhood.

The animal was tranquilized and returned back to it's home in the wild.

Chris Jones has more on the story.
