This should so much not be news!
Park City, Utah (up in the mountains). Cougar shot after killing Utah family’s dog. AP.
This event is so common. People build in cougar habitat and stock their yards with tasty morsels.
There is a similar story in the Bitterroot Valley (actually foothills) of Montana. It seems a cougar killed a pooch on a porch in a Bear Creek dispersed subdivision that is (I looked on Google Earth) hard up against the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, which with the Frank Church Wilderness, is the largest (save one dirt road) Wilderness area in the lower 48 states. That story full of twists and turns and neighborly conflict.
