A loyal dog was ready to lay down her own life to rescue her best friend during a recent mountain lion attack in Northern California.

A few minutes after twenty-four-year-old Erin Wilson parked her truck and began walking down a trail to the Trinity River, the unthinkable happened, NPR reported Saturday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’m just walking down the slope and the dog had run ahead of me. And I turn around and there’s this cat just growling at me and it reaches up and it swipes at me,” she recalled of the harrowing incident. “At first, I was just like, Wait, what? And I think I screamed and I shouted for Eva and she came running.”

Eva is a 2 1/2-year-old Belgian Malinois, the report explains. The breed is commonly used as police and military K-9s.

WATCH the news report below:

The Mountain Lion Foundation shared the following statement on Facebook:

We are thankful that Erin Wilson and her dog Eva are recovering well after fending off an attack by a mountain lion near Big Bar, CA. Recent updates indicate that Eva is likely to come home from the vet soon, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife is working to find the mountain lion.…/statement-on-incident-near…/

Erin responded exactly as one should in such a moment. Her quick thinking and the assistance of a passer-by prevented a bad situation from getting worse. By first attempting to scare off the mountain lion, then fighting back with pepper spray and ultimately a PVC pipe, they drove away the lion. Their description of the lion indicates that it is probably unwell, underfed, and possibly suffering from eye problems, all of which likely contributed to the cat’s unusual behavior.

Incidents like this are incredibly rare, but shocking whenever they occur. Even with thousands of mountain lions throughout the West, and our constantly increasing recreation and number of residences in mountain lion territory, one is still more likely to be struck by lightning than to experience such an attack.

In the West, we live alongside wildlife like mountain lions, wolves, coyotes, bears and other animals. MLF believes that people and wildlife alike can thrive and share the landscape. It is our hope and mission to ensure that these types of traumatic encounters will be as rare as possible.

The swelling of her face and her eye has gone down since yesterday. She will spend one more night with the vet. Thank you again to everyone for your love and support.”

  1. People loves danger and drags innocent lives with it. Let wild animals live and enjoy their habitat. If you love thrills and dangers be prepared enough for him. She was lucky she had her dog with her, otherwise she her story would had been different.

  2. I have thought about this dog several times since I read the initial report. God love it that it was there to save its owner. And I’m thankful that the owner was able to save the dog. We should all be so lucky.
