Students of Pescadero High School in Northern California in the United States were surprised to find a mountain lion cub sitting inside one of their classrooms on Tuesday. Nobody was harmed.

According to a report from NDTV, local authorities said that it was a common sight for mountain lions to roam around the school but this was the first time when the animal entered the school premises.

According to the Oakland Zoo, the mountain lion cub is a 6-7 months old, male. Taking to its Twitter handle, the Oakland Zoo said that the cub suffered from a fractured tooth which had to be extracted.

The Oakland Zoo has been receiving many such orphaned mountain lion cubs recently. In April this year, they rescued an extremely malnourish five-month-old female cub that is currently healing under their care.
