Mountain lion breaks into house where it attacks & kills owner’s cat

BOULDER, Colo. — A Colorado resident walked in on a very unwelcome guest Wednesday night after returning home to find that a mountain lion had managed to slip inside the residence.

Police tweeted a photo of the big cat sitting between a couch and coffee table. According to the tweet, the mountain lion entered the Boulder home through a screen door.

The mountain lion made its way around both levels of the home and it took Boulder police and Colorado Parks and Wildlife more than an hour to coax the animal out of the home using less lethal force, a statement from Boulder Police and Fire said.

Shortly after midnight, the mountain lion left the front door. Several less lethal rounds were fired to send the mountain lion out of the area.

No people were injured, but the mountain lion did kill the homeowner’s cat, police said.

Police are urging local residents to keep ground level doors and windows closed and locked at night and when they leave.
