NEDERLAND, Colo. — It’s easy to see Maeby has had a rough week. It was caught on video.

The 3-year-old boxer/Labrador mix went outside of the Nederland family home and came back injured with puncture wounds after a scrape with a mountain lion.

Family surveillance video shows Maeby going outside, then three family members race to save her when they hear the commotion.

Later in the video, the big cat is seen slowly lingering near the home, in no great hurry to leave.

Charlie Allen, one of the men who raced outside, is shown flickering a flashlight to drive the mountain lion away.

Maeby was taken to a veterinarian, and after being bandaged up, she now shows off her battle scars.

In the video, it appears the mountain lion is wearing a radio collar.

The cat might have been spotted in the same Nederland area since the confrontation with Maeby.
