Division of Wildlife officers killed a mountain lion early Tuesday, a day after the animal entered the bedroom of an Idledale family while they were asleep and made off with a family pet.
The name of the family, who are longtime Idledale residents, has not been released, said DOW spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill.
“They are pretty traumatized by the event. They don’t really want to talk (right now),” Churchill said.
The lion entered a bedroom on the ground level of the home through open French doors about 4 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 4.
