15 pet dogs killed by mountain lions in 30 days? That’s the reality in Nederland, Colorado. A quiet little ski town outside of Boulder. I recently posted about the topic on my Instagram page and Cody Neill sent me a message that he lives in the community. I immediately knew we needed to sit down and discuss what exactly is going on. What do the locals know about this cat? is Colorado Parks and Wildlife attempting to help them deal with the problem animal? Some of the dogs being killed aren’t the typical 15 lb lap dog variety, a 100 lb doberman disappeared, a 90 lb Bernese Mountain Dog was found partially consumed 400 yards from it’s house.
We discuss the mindset of the community and how it’s changed the way parents allow their kids to do regular daily activities like checking the mail box.
