“Last night at approximately 10:40 p.m., we received a call from a homeowner who upon returning home discovered a mountain lion inside their home in the 400 block of Marine Street. We believe that the mountain lion pushed through a screen and then could not get back out. The mountain lion roamed throughout two levels of the home. It took Boulder police and Colorado Parks and Wildlife over an hour to coax the mountain lion out of the home using less lethal force. Shortly, after midnight the mountain lion cautiously left the front door. Several less lethal rounds were fired to haze the mountain lion out of the area. Thankfully no people were inside the home. Sadly, a house cat was killed. The mountain lion did not appear to be injured from the less lethal rounds.
