Not every human encounter with a big wild cat has a happy ending, but this one sure did.

Last Friday, a wild cougar made its way over to a residential area in the 100-block of Gorge Road East, prompting Victoria police, fire crews, and Conservation Officers to search for the animal.

Once spotted, officers released hounds which chased the big cat up a tree outside of Gorge Road Hospital.

The young feline was then tranquilized and carefully carried down from the tree by a firefighter, before it was ear tagged and relocated into the wilderness.

Check out these photos and videos of the incident:
