After being sent on a wild goose chase, B.C. conservation officers located and tranquilized a cougar in James Bay Monday morning.

The cougar was first spotted in the 200-block of Michigan Street around 3 a.m. Monday and was spotted again this morning before conservation officers were called in.

After being chased through backyards in the 200-blocks of Michigan, Ontario and Superior streets near the B.C. legislature for several hours, the cougar was finally tranquilized around 10 a.m. and taken into care by conservation officers.

The big cat will be relocated.
