LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — A deputy and citizen were attacked by a mountain lion in Larimer County Wednesday afternoon.
The incident occurred when deputies from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office and game wardens from Colorado Parks and Wildlife responded to a reported mountain lion attack in the 2100 block of River Rim Road in unincorporated Larimer County/Loveland.
After tracking the animal from the original site to a trailer park, the mountain lion attacked a deputy. Multiple shots were fired at the animal but it continued moving east across the river and to a home on Black Crow Road near Highway 34.
Part of the attack was caught on video:
A CPW game warden shot and killed the animal near the home.
Both the injured citizen and deputy were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
