CALIFORNIA: A mother rescued her five-year-old child from the clutches of a mountain lion when the beast tried to drag her.
Although the child’s condition is now out of danger, he has received injuries and scratches. However, the California Wildlife Department said in a statement that the child was attacked by a 65-pound lion, who was rescued by his mother by punching her five-year-old son.
The lion’s barking has caused scratches on the baby’s head, neck and upper torso. When the mother heard her baby screaming, she immediately rushed there and freed the baby from the lion’s clutches. The incident took place in Calabasas. The wildlife department has declared the baby’s mother a hero who started killing the lion without thinking.
When wildlife officials inspected the scene, they encountered the same ‘angry and aggressive’ lion that had roared the baby. Officers shot and killed him. When it was analyzed in the laboratory, the attacking animal was found and confirmed.
