A six-year-old boy was hiking with his family and friends when a mountain lion seemingly came out of nowhere and jumped the boy. The creature started to drag him off by his head as horrified family members and friends watched. The boy’s father and another man fought the animal off by shouting and acting aggressively, which resulted in the predator releasing the boy from its grips, according to Yahoo News on Sept. 9.
The family and friends were hiking in a public open space preserve not far from Cupertino, a city in Silicon Valley, when the large cat showed up on the trail. Lt. Paul Foy from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife said that it is unusual for a mountain lion to attack like that when there’s a group of people.
