Dog puts own live at risk chases away huge lion to protect his family

What a brave dog! Thank you for defending your family, Rocky - I hope you're doing well!

It’s incredible how devoted dogs are to their owners. We’ve heard so many stories about heroic pets defending their owners when they’re in danger, even if it means putting their own lives at serious risk.

Like one brave dog that battled a mountain lion who was threatening his family.

Mountain lion right in their own backyard.

Mary Padres of La Verne, California, screamed after coming face to face with a big, wild mountain lion in her own backyard: “The mountain lion was looking straight at me,” Mary told CBS Los Angeles. “It was massive.”

Mary’s dogs, on the other hand, went into guard mode to protect the family. Rocky, the smaller of the two dogs, chose to pursue the mountain lion away after both dogs barked at it in an attempt to scare it away.

In the previous two weeks, a huge mountain lion has been spotted twice in the region.

Rocky, proving that huge heroes may come in tiny packages, pursued down the larger, fiercer cat, chasing him up a hill.

Unfortunately, the huge cat fought back, leaving Rocky with serious scarring: “We saw the hole all the way down to his brain,” Mary said.

After seeing Rocky heroically defending the family, Mary returned the favor by going outdoors to seek the dog, despite the mountain lion nearby.

Rocky has 8 big puncture wounds that needed 30 stitches, but he is expected to recover.

According to CBS LA, the mountain lion is still on the run, but Rocky escaped uninjured, scarred but alive. He apparently suffered eight major puncture wounds and was stitched up by the vet.

His owner was grateful for him, knowing he risked his own safety to defend her: “He went after that mountain lion to make sure I was OK,” Mary explained.
