Nature is beautiful and so is Colorado, but when you’re living in the wild… you gotta remember, you’re LIVING IN THE WILD.
According to the Journal, an Hermosa, Colorado, woman woke up in the middle of the night to feed her baby when she popped open the blinds, took a gaze out her window at the majestic Rocky Mountains, and saw a mountain lion ruthlessly dragging a deer across her yard by the throat.
And while the woman is used to living in mountain lion country she admitted that it was pretty shocking.
“I was very startled, for sure.”
Her husband said that the mountain lion dragged the carcass over a fence and more than 100 yards to a neighbor’s property, before chowing down over the course of the next few days. After examining the property, the family could see the monster strides the mountain lion made during the attack, with some as far as 20 feet apart.
If you’ve seen the kind of shit a house cat can do with their little bodies, just imagine what one of these beasts can do. It’s equal parts awesome and terrifying.
