Boy Attacked by A Mountain Lion in Bailey, CO Yesterday

He was attacked yesterday evening in his yard. Bitten on the head. The 8-year-old is reported to be in serious but stable condition. Two cats were euthanized nearby today after taking a domestic goat. They will be DNA tested and necropsied to confirm involvement. I’m guessing that they were young cats because Mtn Lions have huge territories and don’t hang out together.

This was hiking distance from my house. I saw a big one while out scouting earlier this year.

Update on progress of this incredible young man and his family.

There is a GoFundMe account to help the family with medical expenses.
