Things could have ended much worse for a family’s dog had it not been for a pane of glass stopping a hungry mountain lion from making it dinner.
The video, taken by a woman in Colorado, shows her dog named Dash frozen in fear as the mountain lion spots it from outside. The mountain lion seems puzzled by the barrier, trying different ways to get in, even tapping on the glass with its paw.
You can hear the fear in the woman’s voice as she records and tries to get Dash away from the door, without any luck. The dog is clearly terrified, not moving.
Finally, the mountain lion gives up … walking away into the backyard, and that’s when Dash finds his courage again, barking as the animal trots off.
