Young Boy Attacked by a Mountain Lion West of Boulder

A seven-year-old boy was attacked by a mountain lion at approximately 6 p.m. on Saturday at Artist�s Point on Flagstaff Mountain, just west of the Boulder city limits.

The boy was walking hand in hand with his father at the end of a group of six other family members and friends. The attack took place on a trail 30 yards away from the parking lot to the popular scenic overlook. The lion bit the boy in the head and jaw area and also injured the boy�s legs, most likely with its hind paws. The family took the correct action in this very rare type of incident by aggressively fighting the lion with sticks and rocks in an effort to get the lion to release the boy. The boy was taken to the Boulder County Hospital and later transferred to Denver Children�s hospital. The injuries to the child are not considered life threatening.
