Mountain lion breaks into Colorado home, kills family cat


DENVER: A mountain lion crawled into a Colorado home and killed a family’s pet house cat and fled into a canyon after wildlife officers shot it with non-lethal bean bag rounds to force it outside, police said on Friday.

The prowling cougar came through an unlocked screen door at a home in Boulder in the Colorado foothills late Thursday night while the occupants were not home, Jason Clay, spokesman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, said in a statement.

The residents, who were not named, discovered the mountain lion inside their residence when they arrived home, and called police who then summoned the wildlife agency, Clay said.
