Denver: Mountain lion snatches dog from owners’ bedroom
IDLEDALE, Colorado ” A mountain lion has snatched a Labrador retriever from a bedroom in the foothills southwest of Denver, and the dog’s dead body was found nearby.
State wildlife managers say the lion entered the bedroom early Monday through a door the owners left open, probably to cool the house. The door did not have a screen.
It’s not clear whether the owners were in the room at the time.
State Division of Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill says officers are hunting for the mountain lion and have set a trap.
Idledale is about 14 miles southwest of Denver.
