They say never mess with a mother and this Colorado mom proves why as she fights off a wild animal!

Saturday night in Colorado a 5 year old boy and his older brother were outside playing, when the 5 year old was attacked by a mountain lion.   The boys’ mom was inside when she heard screaming, she ran outside, saw the mountain lion on top of her son.  She immediately started wrestling with the cat and got it to let go of her son.  SHE FOUGHT OFF A MOUNTAIN LION!

Both mom and son are going to be fine.  The mom has some bites to her hands and legs and her son is in good condition.  The attack happened just north of Aspen and wildlife officials found the mountain lion and put it down.
