BOULDER, Colo. — The Colorado Division of Wildlife captured a mountain lion on Boulder’s University Hill Wednesday.A pair of dogs chased the cougar into a tree near Sixth Street and College Avenue. That’s where Division of Wildlife officers sedated the animal.Officers attached a radio collar to the mountain lion before he was relocated. He is now part of a 5-year mountain lion study being conducted by the Division of Wildlife. The study is in its second year.

The Division of Wildlife is tracking the mountain lion’s home range. “We are also trying to find new tools for managing lions that we can add to our arsenal beyond relocating or killing them,” according to DOW spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill.
