GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- The Garfield County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado Parks and Wildlife are warning about pets being attacked by mountain lions just west of Glenwood Springs.
CPW tells us there have been several attacks over the past few weeks, one resulting in the pet’s death.
They’re asking you to be vigilant about keeping your pets inside when you’re not home, or not paying attention.
"They're not out searching for your pet, but it's an opportunity,” Perry Will, wildlife manager for CPW, said. “Same thing goes for children, adults running. Pay attention, you do live in lion country. A lot of people don't think so, they don't see one, but they're definitely there."
