California Department of Fish and Game spokeswoman Janice Mackey said Cody, an 85-pound German shepherd, spotted a male mountain lion around 7:30 a.m. yesterday near La Barranca and Elena roads in Los Altos, and promptly chased him up a tree.

NBC Bay Area Reporter Bob Redell visited Cody and his owner and manged to record impressive footage of the big cat. Fortunately, the mountain lion descended from the tree around 10 and was allowed to saunter away unharmed.

Cody’s owner John Sphar said he will lock his goats in a barn tonight in case the cat returns for another visit, having previously lost a goat to a mountain lion in 2010.
