Here kitty, kitty.

Colorado Mountain Lion Fever: Catch It!

It's like living in an episode of

When Animals Attack

. On August 5 in New Castle,

a man shot and killed a mountain lion he said was on his trail

just a day after another of the critters got into a home in Idledale and

snacked on the family Labrador


What have we done to turn nature against us? Plenty of things, probably -- but we can fight back. Below, find two short videos of a mountain lion that was trapped and tranquilized by Department of Wildlife representatives near Boulder. The clips, uploaded on August 4, are reminiscent of The Blair Witch Project, except with dialogue like, "That's a big kitty cat."
