Caught on Cam: Mountain Lion Sighting Turns Out to Be Cat

Employees called police for what they thought was a mountain lion

Employees at a San Diego warehouse were evacuated after a mountain lion was reported to be on the prowl inside the building early Wednesday. Once police arrived, they took a closer look at the video and determined the animal was a cat.

Employees at GTM Discount General Stores on Corporate Center Drive called police around 8 a.m. for what they thought was a mountain lion caught on the security camera system.

Police were told the animal may still be inside.

However, about an hour later officials determined the so-called mountain lion was just an average-sized cat.
