Mom Fights Cougar Attacking Her Son

Talk about motherly instincts! A Canadian woman heard her son in trouble in their backyard and came to his rescue. Zachery, 7, was playing outside when a cougar jumped the fence and started attacking him.

His mom, Chelsea, ran out and jumped on the cougar's back and pried his jaws off of her son's arm. Eventually, the cougar ran off and Zach and his mom were rushed the hospital where he received stitches for a 1.5-inch gash on his head.

Zachery is expected to fully recover. The British Columbia's Conservation Officer Services said that children often make a bunch of noise around cougars which scares them into attacking - if faced with a cougar, pick up your children immediately and slowly back away.
