A mountain lion entered a home in Boulder last night through a screen door. The cat burglar was chased off. No people were injured but a house cat, sadly, was killed. Please keep ground level doors and windows closed and locked at night and when you’re not home. pic.twitter.com/7u5nRwZBaw— City of Boulder (@bouldercolorado) August 10, 2018
It appeared it had pushed through a screen and could not get back out.
The big cat roamed throughout the home for more than an hour before officers used non-lethal rounds to scare it out of the front door.
