(02-20) 13:05 PST FREMONT -- A mountain lion has been sighted under the BART tracks near Moury Avenue in Fremont, the agency said, and Animal Care and Control officers have been called to try to corral the cat, said BART spokesman Linton Johnson.

The sighting was reported at 12:46 p.m. on land near BART property, and the animal did not appear to be a danger to passengers, Johnson said.

No train delays have been reported in connection with the sighting.

The latest report actually states that no such animal was found under the tracks, despite sighting reported by two sources.

Well, maybe the animal left the area. I can't imagine bart tracks, as loud and highly used as they are, being a comfortable place for animals to dwell.
