Our first thought was, is this for real? But evidently it is.
3 toy Chihuahuas cornered a real live, angry mountain lion in a garage and held it at bay until the stunned owner woke up, took some photos, called 9-1-1 and two Riverside County Sheriff's deputies arrived. And then .... and then finally, nearly an hour later, officers with the Department of Fish and Game arrived with a tranquilizer gun. What happened to the cougar is unclear. But the three Chihuahuas are fine, though we suspect all three might have a severe case of laryngitis.
