I live by boyd lake as well over by the MCR hospital guess you call that neighborhood high plains village. I remember the little boy getting attacked. Kid was running between groups of people on the trail and went missing. Found lion tracks and the remains like you said. That lion attack up on horsetooth was crazy! Listing to that guy tell his story was a wow factor!That human attack occurred within 7 miles of my house. A few years ago a 5 yr old was snatched off of a hiking trail while with a church group, within 20 miles of my house. They found parts of his remains a couple of years later.
Creepy thing about a lion is they’ll kill just to kill stash something in a bush and come back later. Had one kill a calf one time and watched over the kill that next night and he came back... come up on deer kills a few times as well.
Wolves. Theyll just eat the rear end out of an animal. Move along. Seen vidoes of a cow that was still a live walking around and rear end was completely tore up from a lone wolf
