SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A pet cat still wearing a harness was discovered and rescued as it cowered hundreds of feet above the water on the ledge of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, authorities said.

San Francisco Animal Care and Control officials said the 6-year-old male cat was located on the bridge on Tuesday, but it is still a mystery as to how he got there.

The California Highway Patrol and Caltrans workers assisted SF Animal Control in getting the animal to safety using a net.

Animal Care officials have named the cat Tenzing and were hoping its owner will come forward and claim their pet and explain how it got onto the busy Bay Bridge.
