A Morrison area resident and his dog encountered a mountain lion on their walk last week, and the cougar chased the canine some distance before running off.
According to Jennifer Churchill at Colorado Parks & Wildlife, the man was walking his dog on Wild Turkey Trail near Red Rocks Country Club on Nov. 21. He let the dog off her leash, and she ran ahead of him and out of his sight.
He called the dog, but she did not respond, and the man heard her yelping. He ran toward her and saw a mountain lion chasing the canine.
