Caught On Camera: Mountain Lion Walks Into Colorado Motel

CCTV footage from the motel shows the mountain lion walking in.


Wildlife officials in Colorado, USA, have shared startling footage of a mountain lion wandering into a motel in the city of Boulder. Surveillance footage from the motel shows the mountain lion walking into the motel through a door that had been left open before quickly exiting the building. The footage was shared by Colorado Parks and Wildlife on Monday to warn locals and tourists visiting Colorado about keeping their doors shut and their dogs on a leash.

According to Daily Camera, the incident took place at the Foot of the Mountain Motel.

In the video, the mountain lion appears startled by something. Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Jason Clay tells Daily Camera that it had encountered some visitors and their dog.

"Those people did a good job keeping their animal on a leash and then just going back into their room... There weren't any problems, though it probably scared those people," he said

Watch the video below:

The video collected quite a few reactions (and some jokes) on Twitter:

According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, much of Colorado, including the Front Range, is prime mountain lion country. The state is home to around 7,000 mountain lions, which means man-animal conflict is not uncommon. In March this year, for example, a wildlife official was forced to climb a tree in a residential neighbourhood to capture a mountain lion that was napping on it.
