Heroic Mother Saves 5 Yr-Old From Mountain Lion In Their Front Yard By Doing This… Unbelievable!

A mother in Colorado is being hailed as a hero because she didn’t let a vicious, strong mountain lion get away with trying to kill her toddler in front of her.

The mother from Aspen, Colorado, heard her son screaming and when she ran to see what was wrong she found a mountain lion had chomped down on her little boy’s head with its super strong jaws and sharp teeth.

But she wasn’t about to stand by helplessly as the beast killed her baby. According to the Daily Mail, she attacked the creature and actually pried its iron-like jaws off the toddler’s head and neck.

Summoned by the sound of screams, a Colorado woman raced to her front yard to find a terrifying sight: A mountain lion was hunched over her five-year-old son, biting him.

The woman charged the animal, yanked away one of its paws and discovered her son’s whole head was in its mouth. She didn’t back down.

‘She was able to pry the cat’s jaws open,’ Pitkin County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Buglione said. ‘She’s a hero.’

The boy suffered deep cuts to his head, face and neck and was flown to a Denver hospital. The mother, who also had scratches and bites, is credited with saving his life.

The ordeal started Friday evening when the five-year-old and his older brother were playing outside their home near the resort town of Aspen, Buglione said.

When the woman ran outside, she found the mountain lion crouched over her younger son, who was struggling to get free.

‘The boy was completely under the cat,’ Buglione told The Aspen Times.

The mother grabbed the lion’s mouth and pried it open, freeing the boy. She then scooped him up and ran away, the deputy said.

The boy was rushed to the hospital where he is alive and being well cared for.

We pray that the child won’t have lasting injuries, but wow, does this boy have a story to tell his grandkids!
