Officials from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife are searching for the mountain lion, but have still not found it.

Department Captain Patrick Foy said if they do locate the animal, they will attempt to tranquilize it instead of killing it. Fish and Wildlife officials can issue a depredation permit to authorize an animal be killed if it has attacked a pet at the owner's request.

"In this case, the pet owner declined," Foy told the Ventura County Star. "She said she didn't want to see the lion be killed."

The cat is believed to be P-35, one of the animals tracked by the National Park Service but whose collar has stopped working. P-35 had a GPS radio-collar first installed on her in April 2014 and is now believed to be around 10-years-old.

"What we do know is that this is not one of the mountain lions we are tracking with a working collar," Ana Beatriz Cholo, spokeswoman for the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, told the Ventura County Star.

"There's a possibility that this is P-35," she said.

Officers who attended the scene of the attack in the Simi Valley backyard said they were unable to see if the animal had a collar or not.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has been contacted for further information.
