Boy Recives minor injuries in mountain lion encounter

Officials say a 10 year old Blaine county boy received only minor scratches after an encounter with a mountain lion last week. The Idaho Mountain Express reports that the young boy, whose name has not been released, was reportedly out searching with his father for a missing pet bird dog on Thursday. According to a press release from the Department, the boy encountered the lion in thick brush near his Mores Creek subdivision home. The boy ran, but stumbled and the cat caught up, swiping his arm and leaving minor injuries. The lion was scared off by the father’s 9mm handgun and killed on Friday by Idaho Department of Fish and Game officers, an off-duty Meridian police officer and a Boise County deputy.┬áThe female cat was estimated to be 50 pounds and approximately a year-and-a-half old.This is only the second recorded mountain lion incident involving injury to a human in Idaho. The other involved a 12-year-old boy on the Salmon River in the early 1990s.
