You may have heard about the mountain lion attack here in Colorado recently. We wanted to share the information with you so you can be informed. On Monday, Feb. 4 at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space a trail runner was attacked by a juvenile mountain lion. The victim was able to defend himself from the attack, resulting in the death of the mountain lion (by suffocation). The runner was then able to leave the open space property and get himself to a local hospital.
From our friends at the Elbert County Sheriff Office, we have learned of a mountain lion sighting in North West Elbert County. Although Mountain Lions won’t typically attack your horses, please be aware if you are in the area and take necessary precautions.
