    Mountain lion mauls dog that defended owners

    May 5th, 2009 | LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. -- A mountain lion attacked and nearly killed a dog that defended its owners Tuesday on a trail in the Santa Ana Mountains.

    The dog was severely mauled in the stomach area and rushed to a veterinary hospital for surgery, said Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. The 5-year-old shepherd mix named Hoagie underwent a four-hour operation and was expected to survive, he said.

    William Morse told KABC-TV that he was hiking with his wife near a campground in the Cleveland National Forest, about 10 miles from Lake Elsinore, when a 120-pound mountain lion approached.

    "Out of nowhere, a mountain lion just charged us, attacked us. And my dog saved our lives," Morse said.

    He said the attack lasted less than 10 seconds and left the dog with deep wounds.

    But, Amormino said, the dog put up a "vicious fight. I'm sure that lion was hurt, too."

    Morse said he was traumatized by the attack and will never return to the campground where he and his wife have been hiking for years.

    Sheriff's deputies and Forest Service officials have not located the mountain lion, which will be destroyed if located, officials said.

    Hoagie is a hero! What a brave and loyal dog. I hope he has a long and fulfilling life.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
