Mother fights off mountain lion that attacked her 5-year-old son



A Southern California mom fought off a 65-pound mountain lion that attacked her 5-year-old son.



According to wildlife officials, the mom heard a disturbance outside on Thursday morning, August 26, and found the mountain lion dragging her 5-year-old son across her front yard.



"She ran out of the house and started punching and striking the mountain lion with her bare hands and got him off her son," Capt. Patrick Foy, a California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokesman, told the Associated Press."



"The true hero of this story is his mom because she absolutely saved her son’s life," Foy added.



The boy is hospitalized in stable condition with injuries to his head and torso.



A wildlife officer later shot and killed a mountain lion after finding it hiding on a corner of the Calabasas property, the department said in a press release.Latest Post
