Lion Attacks Big Horn Man

Big Horn, Wy – A Big Horn man needed a little help to fight off a mountain lion this week. The unnamed man was attacked on his property near Little Goose Creek around four in the afternoon. When he spotted the lion, it was ten feet away and eventually charged him. He hit it with a shovel, and shouted for help. A neighbor helped him, and later authorities killed the lion. Game and Fish Spokesman Warren Mischke says people always need to fight back against a Lion. Mischke says the problem is that too many people feed deer in residential areas, which attracts the lions.
