Mountain lion traps woman in Boulder outhouse
A young mountain lion trapped a woman and her dog in an outhouse near the Sunrise Amphitheatre this morning for several minutes before wandering off, according to Boulder wildlife officials.
The 30-year-old woman and her dog were hiking off trail towards the amphitheater at around 10 a.m. when they saw the mountain lion about three feet away, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill.
The woman spotted an outhouse about 50 yards away and started to move towards it with her dog -- which was on a leash -- while making noise and raising her hands, Churchilll said. The mountain lion backed up but still followed the woman to the outhouse.
