Music, Movies and the Not So Mundane

A 10-year-old Idaho boy went toe-to-toe with a mountain lion in a rural area of Boise, Idaho, escaping with only minor scratches. He was apparently unfazed by the event, claiming his biggest fear is that his friends at school won't believe his story. The boy and his father were looking for a missing hunting dog when he happened upon the mountain lion feeding on the dog in question. Case closed.

The child tried to run from the lion but tripped allowing the lion to take a swipe at the boy's arm. The boy drew his hunting knife and screamed something at the lion. Probably, "This is Boise!"

The boy's father then fired off a few warning shots and the lion scampered away.—-
