Heard about this at the vet clinic today, and in hunting down the article I discovered that this isn't the first time a mountain lion has entered a house of sleeping people to nab the family dog. Found several articles about it in Colorado and California.

Here's the article.

There seems to be something missing from the story that would give us more of a clue as to why this happened. Maybe the pooch had more to do with the events that the sleeping Mom and child were aware of. In any event, too bad for the pooch and the ones who witnessed it, that would be hard to take.

Predatory opportunism comes in many forms, apparently. Very interesting article and one that reinforces personal accounts heard from folks living in the front range of Colorado (Lyons, CO) where pets were predated by lions off porches and backyards. In these cases, there seemed to be a pattern where humans were densely building and inhabiting homes in prime cat country.

Totally agree as we see the same thing happening here with Bears and Cougars.

They get cats and dogs up here where I live too, but so far haven;t entered houses for them. But there are so many break-ins by druggies here that most everyone keeps their doors locked when the weather's warm.
