Colorado Mountain Lion Attack Caught On Video

By

Deputies shot a mountain lion in Larimer County Wednesday afternoon after it attacked a civilian and a sheriff’s deputy. Denver 7 reports the initial attack was reported around 1:55 p.m. west of the Devil’s Backbone in the 2100 block of River Rim Road.
When deputies arrived they attempted to keep it contained but the lion attacked one of the deputies and was shot. After getting shot, the lion continued moving east across the river and to a home on Black Crow Road near Highway 34. A CPW game warden shot and killed the animal near the home.
The deputy and the civilian were both transported by ambulance to an area hospital where they were treated for apparent but non-life-threatening injuries. The attack on the deputy was captured on video:
