My wife and I used to live in the Sidehill area, off of Drake and Timberline Roads in Fort Collins.  We lived there for a couple years, and I still never would have guessed it was mountain lion territory!

The Coloradoan reports a 60-pound, male mountain lion was spotted in a tree in a resident's backyard.  It was successfully tranquilized, captured, and release back into the wild.  Check out the video of the huge cat below!
