Late Friday evening a man was out walking his two leashed dogs near Canmore, Alberta. A mountain lion attacked, choosing to pick off the smaller of the two dogs. The man fought off the mountain lion, and ended up saving his dog. The dog did suffer some scratches from the altercation.
Now Alberta Fish and Wildlife Officials are looking for the large adult mountain lion that attacked in town limits. Also they are warning people of the incident, and telling them to walk in groups and carry bear spray. Usually when mountain lions attack people or dogs, it is because of their age or if they are sick. From Winnipeg Free Press .
