The British Columbia Conservation Officer Service responded, finding two juvenile male cougars about 20 yards away from the family’s home. They were reportedly hungry and looking for food. The cougars were captured and both were euthanized. The boy escaped the incident with a gash on his head and minor cuts to his arms and neck. He is expected to make a full recovery.

She ran outside to find a cougar perched on top of Zachery, the boy’s arm between its jaws. That’s when Lockhart says her mom instinct took over and she jumped on top of the animal, attempting to pry its mouth off of her son.
