A gated community in north San Antonio has alerted homeowners to take caution after a dog was attacked and taken away by what was possibly a mountain lion on Tuesday night.
“A small dog was attacked and taken by a large cat thought to be a mountain lion near a wooded area in the Gardens last evening. Texas Parks and Wildlife [Department] has been contacted and will investigate the incident.”
The dog’s owners told KENS 5 he let both of his dogs outside on Tuesday night. When he went outside to check on them, he said a mountain lion had one of the dogs in its mouth. He went inside to fetch a gun, but the mountain lion had already disappeared.
TPWD set up cameras to try to catch images of the mountain lion.
