COAL CREEK CANYON, Colo. — People who live in one Colorado community are asking for help after they say their pets are being hunted by mountain lions.

Residents of Coal Creek Canyon, which is about an hour northwest of Denver, say they’ve seen a spike in attacks recently.

The people who live there are used to living with mountain lions nearby. But they’ve never seen it like this, where they believe their pets are being hunted almost every day.

They want the Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife to get involved.
