Mountain Lion attacks 5 yr old Colorado boy playing in his backyard brother, Mom fights him off and boy survives

And this is why it’s a good idea to have guns around.
Daily Mail reports a five-year-old boy has survived an attack by a mountain lion at his family home.

The youngster was in the yard of the property in the Woody Creek area of Aspen, Colorado, playing with his older brother when the big cat pounced.

But he managed to escape when his mother fought the predator off. 

The boy’s father reportedly drove him to Aspen Valley Hospital with injuries to his face, head and neck. 

He was listed in a fair condition on Friday night.

According to ABC 7, the mother was inside their home on Lower River Road, approximately 10 miles from the center of Aspen, when she heard the boy screaming outside.

She ran out and managed to wrestle her son away.  
The mom was also injured, but was released after being treated.
Neither have been identified.
