The southeast branch of Colorado Parks and Wildlife posted photos of the bobcat to Twitter on Monday.
The cat appeared to be almost suspended in midair because of the soccer net, which officials said was in the backyard of a Golden Hills neighborhood of Colorado Springs.
"Here's why we ask you to take down sports nets when not in use," officials wrote.
The animal was considered to be "lucky," as it "escaped with its life." Other animals, meanwhile, "injure themselves or die frantically trying to escape," according to wildlife officials.
