Good afternoon Heathstead Community!
Last night October 1st at 11.30pm just outside the retaining wall behind of one our homes, a mountain lion killed a buck deer. After hearing commotion of the attack, the Owner went outside on their deck. The lion hissed and snarled back at the Owner and scared the Owner back into the house.
In this morning's light a verified kill was seen by observing the gutted deer carcass at the bottom of the ravine.
Please be cautious of your surroundings. If you happen to confront a mountain lion, back away SLOWLY... raise your arms to LOOK BIG, and SHOUT making allot of noise.
Please contact Colorado Dept. of Wildlife @ 303.291.7227 should you see a lion.
