Such a sad situation but thankfully the boy survived this attack.Pike, the boy attacked by the lion was only playing in the backyard with his brother when the attacked occurred. The 8 year old boy went into defense mode of course and tried to fight off the 65 pound lion. He struck the lion at times before finding a stick to try to fight it off. As this was going on his brother ran into their home to tell the family what was happening.
The families home is in the mountains but apparently never seen a mountain lion before. Lots of bravery from this young boy and very happy he made it out of the lions mouth alive.
