West Odessa Mountain Lion Mauling

“These are wild by nature. And their instinct is to attack.” — Quite a fitting way of describing what it was like to encounter the family members of a young West Odessa boy who was mauled by their “pet” mountain lion just a month or so before I started producing.

Much like the pet, the neighbors and family members were all less than welcoming when I showed up to shoot the residence.

Earlier, before this package aired, we were doing live shots across the street from their home. A man we believe was the father of the young boy came outside and threatened my life.

But, sometimes danger, comes with the job.
