BOULDER – The Division of Wildlife may file charges against a man who shot and killed a mountain lion that was attacking his puppy.


It happened around 1:30 a.m. on Monday outside a home on Flagstaff Road, near the intersection of Lakeshore Drive in west Boulder.

The man's identity has not been released, but the DOW says he was visiting Colorado from out of state.

The DOW says the mountain lion attacked one of three dogs that were chained up outside the home.

After yelling unsuccessfully for the animal to drop the puppy, the man got a shotgun to scare the cougar. He then shot the mountain lion after it moved toward him.

The DOW is investigating if the man was in his legal rights when he shot the animal. There are laws that protect the safety of people and their livestock from mountain lions, but the DOW says this situation is in a grey area because it was a dog.

The puppy is expected to survive after suffering injuries to its belly and neck.

I would have shot the cat even if it got close to my dog.

Just a puppy? Bad shoot. Large and agressive cat turning it's attention to a human? Good shoot.

Why the hell do I have to allow a large predatory cat to eat my dog exactly? It's attacking my pet and my property. That it has gotten to the point that people have to wonder if they can kill the predator eating their pets in front of them is fucking insane.

Mountain lion attacking domestic animal = good shoot.

Mountain lion in your back yard = good shoot.

When a mountain lion is hanging around your back door, you plug the bastard. If they are getting that close to your house, they are a problem waiting to happen...ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE SMALL CHILDREN.

Shoot, shovel, shutup.

The Division Of Wildlife sounds like a bunch of asshats for looking to press charges here.

I see your point entirely, hell I agree with you!

If this was in Boulder, CO he may get life in prison...

That shithole is worse the Berkley.

Before I moved away from northern colorado, the same jerkoffs had shut down the spring bear hunt. Now they have lots of "bear encounters" in the area.

Not a surprise to see a big predator looking for a quick snack in a backyard.

Too bad it was not eating the spawn of the hippie scum in boulder instead of a puppy...

Mountain lion attacking MIL = Meh, I didn't see anything.

Mountain lion attacking wife = That's a tough one, I'll have to think about it.

Mountain lion attacking my dog = There's going to be one less mountain lion in the world that day.

Is birdshot adequate for lion self defense?

Good shot.
