Brave, loyal dog saves owner’s life from mountain lion attack: ‘My dog is my hero’

Dogs are such faithful and devoted companions. They have excellent intuition and will constantly aid when their owners are in trouble, even if it involves putting themselves in risk.

Like one brave dog who fought off an advancing mountain lion and saved her owner’s life.

Erin Wilson of Trinity County, California, is the proud owner of Eva, a 2-and-a-half-year-old Belgian Malinois. The two were just on a leisurely walk by the river, however the serene day quickly turned into a life-threatening struggle.

A mountain lion leapt at Erin, roaring and scratching through her jacket. With no one else nearby, Erin called on Eva for assistance, and the devoted dog rushed to her aid.

Erin claims Eva boldly engaged the mountain lion, hitting that creature extremely hard and distracting the huge cat from Erin. The dog, however, was outmatched, and the mountain lion latched on to her head, inflicting severe suffering.

Erin quickly returned the favor, battling the giant cat with twigs and rocks and soliciting the assistance of a neighboring vehicle, who stopped the attack by shooting the wild animal with pepper spray.

While the mountain lion eventually let Eva go, the dog suffered significant head injuries. She had several puncture wounds in her face, Erin stated. And she was simply spewing blood out of her lips.

Eva was brought to the hospital, and while things appeared bleak, the brave dog survived. Erin set up a GoFundMe page to assist pay for Eva’s medical fees, and she reports that her hero is on the mend, with vets being “positive.”

She is still not out of the woods; she remains deeply sedated until they are confident that the pressure in her head has been decreased, she wrote. She has two skull fractures, a sinus cavity puncture, and considerable swelling around her left eye, which is impairing her eyesight.

Eva sustained some serious injuries in the process, yet she saved her owner’s life.

He believes it’s reasonable to conclude the dog probably saved her life, said Capt. Patrick Foy of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife

Her dog is her hero, and she owes her life to her, Erin said on GoFundMe.

Eva, you are a hero! Thank you for valiantly confronting this mountain lion and saving your owner’s life! It serves as a reminder of how watchful and devoted dogs can be.
