Rancher Sees A Mountain Lion Running Away From The Barn With Her Pregnant Horse Still Inside

Dogs have excellent hearing and an amazing sense of smell. Dogs will alert you to the slightest trouble.

Their bark is enough to scare off most would-be bad guys. It is never a good sign to have your dog go ‘ballistic.’

So, when rare-horse breeder Diane Truxillo’s dog flipped out, she and her husband dashed toward the barn.

The couple live in Anza, California and both saw that their dog had chased a mountain lion back into the woods.

In the barn, the couple had a pregnant horse, and Diane rushed in to check on her.

Phlicka, the mother horse, was fine – but she wasn’t pregnant any longer, she had given birth.

Take a look at this video

Her newborn colt, Charlie, had been severely mauled.

Charlie had a long road ahead of him if he was to recover. He did recover, and it was a miracle!
