A mountain lion that attacked a five-year-old boy in southern California has been shot and killed by a wildlife officer after the boy’s mother saved him from the animal. The 65-pound mountain lion attacked the boy while he was playing near his house  in Calabasas and dragged him some 45 yards across the front lawn. The boy’s mother ran out and attacked the lion with her bare hands and was able to free her son, who she rushed to the hospital. The boy suffered significant injuries to his head and upper torso, but was in a stable condition. The mountain lion was found by wildlife authorities and put down after being deemed a danger to the public.
