(CBS4) A British woman visiting her mother at the foothills of Boulder Mountain had an incredible close encounter with a Colorado predator. A mountain lion spent more than two minutes just outside the glass door – giving her a stunning view from inside the house.

“Oh my God,” you can hear Nina Isaacs say over and over again in the short video. You can watch a longer version of the video in the YouTube player below but with some obscene language.
Towards the end of the video, the mountain lion stops and appears to be looking at Isaacs and her dog in the house.
Isaacs arrived from London before Christmas and stayed for the COVID-19 pandemic. Her mother’s house was at the foothills of Boulder Hill, off Lee Hill.
“Lee Hill is definitely a mountain lion country, so residents there or most places in Boulder shouldn’t be surprised to have mountain lions around,” said Jason Clay with Colorado Parks and Wildlife. know.
“People watching that video will be most effective,” Clay said. “They need to understand that they should act and stay away from the mountain lions when seen around their home,” Clay said. “Don’t let them feel comfortable and protect your pet. Scream through your window, set your car alarm, try something from the inside that you are comfortable with to make the mountain lion move along. “
In February, CPW has released a series of videos to educate us all about how mountain lions live when people move into their space.
