BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) — Wildlife officers are dealing with a mountain lion under a deck — and a bear that has prompted a lockout at a school.

The mountain lion was under a porch near 19th Street and Tyler Road.


Officials with Colorado Parks and Wildlife tried to tranquilize the mountain lion, but the dart bent and did not administer the drug.

The mountain lion ran off through the North Boulder neighborhood.


The school, Flatirons Elementary, is located at 1150 7th Street. Bear sightings have caused five lockouts at the school in the past few weeks.
