Wildlife officers darted the animal with a tranquilizer and waited below the tree with a tarp.

A video shows the animal nosedive from the tree, then land onto the tarp.

The healthy mountain lion was given a reversal drug to “help the lion recover,” wildlife officials said in a Facebook post.

It was removed from the area and released back into the mountains outside the city, another video shows.

Pocatello is about a 235-mile drive southeast from Boise.
