California woman tries to pry open mountain lion’s jaws to save her dog

A southern California woman punched, kicked and elbowed a mountain lion Thursday in an attempt to rescue her six-year-old miniature Schnauzer, but the pet was killed. The woman suffered a minor cut. The attack happened about 35 miles north-east of downtown Los Angeles in a neighborhood adjacent to wildlands in Simi Valley. The lion fled back into the hills after the attack.

This is why 2A exists in America, buy a gun. I know how much losing a dog hurts, I can only imagine losing one in such a manner. Truly man's best friend

Sounds like a hungry mountain lion to venture that close in to human areas. Must not be getting enough wildlife to eat, sounds like it was starving to jump on the schnauzer like that with a human present.

Just a lion doing lion stuff And a pet owner doing pet owner stuff No entity at fault, but humans should try to catch and relocate the kitty.
