Large, wild cat attacks horse in Aitkin County
Horse owner Lori Hart of rural Aitkin wants other livestock owners to know there are large wild cats out there that are attacking horses.
Last week her 900-pound quarter horse mare, Molly, was mauled by a cat that a Pierz veterinarian confirmed was either a mountain lion or a cougar. The cat, Hart said, took “a big old chunk out of her hindquarters.” She said the veterinarian’s office said a similar attack took place on calf less than a month ago.
