Mountain Lion Attacks, Injures 4-Year-Old Near San Diego

Here’s more on the attack from ABC 10 in San Diego:

The department received a call around 2:40 p.m. Friday about a child with scratches on his back and thigh.

Park officials say a family was on a hike when the incident occurred. 

“The child was with a lot of family members which is a good thing and it sounds like the family separated into two groups and the child may have been darting back and forth,” Fish and Wildlife Public Information Officer Tim Daly said that could have made him vulnerable to the attack.
