Boy bitten on the head by mountain lion

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A boy has been bitten on the head by a mountain lion in Colorado - the third such attack in the state this year.

The eight-year-old had been playing on a trampoline with his brother outside their home in the town of Bailey, 35 miles southwest of Denver, on Wednesday evening.

A friend had called his name from a house nearby - and when the boy ran over the mountain lion pounced, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) investigators said.

When the boy's father came outside, the mountain lion was on top of the child, but it ran away when it saw the man approaching.

I mean....Just how is a cat expected to be able to resist a bouncy bite sized toy?

But seriously, this happened and so they trapped two, both of which fit the description of the boys father (mountain lions fit the description of a  mountain lion?????) and euthanized both of them???  For crying out loud.  Why not just relocate them to a national park or something?

The mountain lion had probably thought the playing children were prey, she said, with the attack instinct triggered by the boy running to his friend's home.

YAH THINK LADY?????

We were the primary prey for big cats the whole course of our evolution. :huh:

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers killed two mountain lions.

CPW officers will conduct a necropsy on the mountain lions and send samples to a forensic lab in Wyoming for DNA analysis to confirm that officers captured the lion that attacked the young boy.

So kill them first then see if it was them after?

And what if it was not, go kill some more?

They killed TWO of them!!!!!

Sorry but if the mountain lions live near by, then if you want to move into their area, build a bloody big fence.

Humans just do not give a damn about other life, they think they own this planet.

Feel sorry for the poor boy, but even more sorry for the poor DEAD lionS.

Rural Colorado was overrun by California suburbanites and city clowns who all want country folk and nature to play by their rules. 

Whole ranches have run to Canada because of their craziness. <_<

These cats. If you want to relocate a big cat that has attacked a human, you'll have to take drastic action. Trank the cat, cage it, then scare the living hell out of it! Make it so scared of human scent that one whiff will send it packing never to be seen again. Nothing else will work. If the cat is a female, she will pass on her fear to her cubs. Otherwise euthanasia is the only answer.
