Dog attacked by a mountain lion

Wildlife officials have issued a warning for pet owners, after a mountain lion attacked and killed a dog on Ponder Heights Drive located in Colorado Springs.

A homeowner told Parks and Wildlife, that they found their dog partially buried Friday morning. The dog went missing yesterday.

The homeowner also said that the dog was typically left outside during the day unattended.

Parks and Wildlife strongly recommend that pet owners do not leave their pets outside unattended and bring them in at night. Lions are most active from dusk to dawn but attacks can happen at any time.

If you do leave your pets outside keep them in a kennel with a secure top. Parks and Wildlife are asking those who live in that neighborhood to report any lion sightings to them by calling the Southeast Region Office at 719-227-5200.
