The Arizona Game and Fish Department recently rescued a mountain lion.

The mountain lion kitten was rescued near Sells, Arizona and is now at the Adobe Mountain Wildlife Facility in Phoenix.

The mountain lion is about 6 months old and she is in “guarded” condition.

According to officials, the kitten is only 13 pounds but should really be 30 pounds.

She will be held at the wildlife center until she fully recovers.
