A Nederland resident had a very scary situation happen over the weekend, as they witnessed a mountain lion attack their dog outside of their home.

The dog, which is said to be around 30-40 pounds, was let out in the yard on Saturday night, while accompanied by its owner and several other adults. Unbeknownst to them, a mountain lion was lurking in the shadows, and pounced on the pet. The owner and other adults ran over yelling loudly at the lion, which ended up letting the dog go after about a minute. Thankfully, the dog wasn't hurt very badly and the lion left the property about an hour later.
