'Shadow Of An Animal' Sneaks Into Woman's Bedroom And Snatches Dog

A mountain lion may have gotten away with a dog from the bedroom of a home in the unincorporated San Mateo County community of Pescadero

A woman who lives at the home told them that she and her child were sleeping in a bedroom with their 15-pound Portuguese Podengo at the foot of the bed, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Fought reportedly saw the shadow of an animal entering through some French doors that were cracked open to let the dog in and out.

Around 3 a.m., the woman said she woke up after the dog began to bark aggressively.

After calling 911, deputies searched the area and found paw prints similar to a mountain lion.

The family that lost their dog on Monday says a mountain lion - not the one pictured here - attacked one of their horses years earlier.

Zuno said he could not recall the last time a mountain lion attacked a person or a pet in San Mateo County, where residents can encounter a wide range of wild animals, including mountain lions, coyotes, cougars and poisonous snakes.

The animal took the small dog from the bed and walked out, she told deputies.

The suspect did broadcast another video on Facebook Live at one point, the spokesperson said. Regardless, all funds raised for the Godwins will be transferred directly to the family.

Andrew Hughan, a Fish and Wildlife spokesman, said the department is still trying to determine if the animal was a mountain lion.

Zuno indicated that such events are rare and the family was "very shaken" by the incident. More than half of the state is considered mountain lion habitat, and it's not unusual for the stealthy creatures to attack livestock and household pets, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Mountain lion sightings are not uncommon in San Mateo County where rural areas blend into neighborhoods. He examined what appeared to be mountain lion tracks that were spotted just down the lane.

"I told her that it was a lion", she said, recalling the moment she explained to her daughter what happened.

When a California family left their door opened a crack to air out their bedroom, they said they never would have expected a mountain lion to take advantage of the easy access to their home.

Zuno said it's important for people to be aware of how to interact or protect themselves from encounters with a variety of wildlife whether it's mountain lions or coyotes, as they're part of San Mateo County.
