A lady and her dog were taken care of for accidents Monday following they were being reportedly attacked by a mountain lion in rural Trinity County, officials explained.
Wildlife officers explained a lady was walking in a picnic spot in the vicinity of Big Bar, just off of Freeway 299, close to 3 p.m. with her Belgian Malinois walking marginally forward of her. Suddenly the girl was swiped from powering, reportedly by a mountain lion. The animal clawed the woman’s shoulder, tearing as a result of her jacket and puncturing her pores and skin, officials stated. She screamed and her pet dog “immediately returned and engaged the mountain lion” main to a “pretty vicious struggle,” reported Capt. Patrick Foy, a spokesperson for the California Section of Fish and Wildlife, which is investigating the attack.
