According to a report by Reuters, on Monday, a Colorado jogger fought off a mountain lion in the foothills of Horsetooth Mountain, suffering severe bites before he killed the wild animal in self-defense. The man, whose name was not released, was reportedly jogging on a trail on the West Ridge of the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, a mountain park about 66 miles northwest of Denver when a juvenile mountain lion attacked him from behind, biting and clawing the man’s face, back, legs and arms, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Larimer County Department of Natural Resources said in a joint release, late on Monday. Officials reportedly said that the runner was able to get to a local hospital, and that his injuries were serious but not life-threatening.
