Necropsy Results On Mountain Lion Inconclusive

Colorado Division of Wildlife Officials are sticking to their story.
They say based on evidence at the scene, they tracked and killed the right mountain lion responsible for attacking a 7-year-old boy earlier this month near Boulder. However a necropsy performed on the animal did not prove whether it was in fact the mountain lion that assaulted Shir Feldman. The boy suffered a broken jaw and puncture wounds during the attack at Flagstaff Mountain. A protein test was used to search for human blood on the female mountain lion's claws and mouth, but none was detected. Veterinarians also say they didn't find any sign of disease that may have caused the animal to attack.
