[VIDEO] Colorado Deer Escapes Mountain Lion Attack
Warning: This video may be disturbing to some viewers.
A paper delivery driver in Pine, Colorado came across a mountain lion dragging a deer by its neck early Monday morning.
Colorado Parks & Wildlife say there's somewhere between 4,000 and 5,500 mountain lions in the state.
Jason Clay, Public Information Officer with CPW told Fox 31:
I was talking with one of our area wildlife managers…She said in the last 10 years she knows of maybe three to five cases where people actually saw [a mountain lion] in person... and getting it on camera is even rarer.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife have put together some tips for avoiding and surviving mountain lion encounters. Find them HERE
