Wildlife officials say the attack occurred off Bogus Basin Road along Corrals Trail. A Boise man was riding his mountain bike along with his two dogs when he heard a yelp.
The man says he turned around and saw a mountain lion jump from the brush and attack one of his dogs. He then started pelting the cougar with rocks and yelling loudly.
But the cougar then attacked his second dog. Soon after, Idaho Fish and Game says, the man picked up a large rock and hit the cougar in the head, which stunned the animal.
He then picked up his dog and rode down to the trail head and called 911. His second dog was waiting for him by his vehicle. | Listen to 911 Call
"I hit it with a rock, I think I might have killed it," the man said on the call.
Both dogs are expected to survive. The mountain lion has not been found.
