DNA Confirms Mountain Lion Attacked Boy
The DNA results have come back from the two mountain lions that were euthanized after an 8-year-old boy was attacked near his home in Bailey, Colorado.
A press release has confirmed that one of the two mountain lions that were euthanized in connection with the attack was indeed positive. Samples were taken from the boy's chest and neck matched one of the mountain lion's DNA. Additional tests were performed on the shirt of the boy's father after picking up the child and bedding from the hospital.
