Mother Saves 7-Year-Old Son From Cougar

From British Columbia's Prince George Citizen:

A mother watched as a cougar leapt onto her young son's back, on a hiking trail near Quesnel Saturday afternoon, and in a flash she stepped in to fight back. . . .

The boy sustained minor scratches that required a few stitches. Krause said the wounds were not severe and were confined to his right cheek and ear, and a little on his back. His motherwas uninjured.
