Authorities in California said a mountain lion wandered into a high school Wednesday morning and was promptly locked inside a classroom by a custodian.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that a mountain lion was spotted inside Pescadero High School early Wednesday morning and a custodian closed the animal into an unoccupied English classroom.

The sheriff’s office said all students and staff at the school were safe and no one was injured by the cougar.
