LAKE FOREST, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say a 3-year-old boy is recovering after being attacked by a mountain lion in a California wilderness park. The Orange County Fire Authority says the attack occurred Monday in Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park. Authorities say the boy’s father threw a backpack at the cougar, and it grabbed the pack and climbed a tree. The boy was treated at a hospital and released. The Sheriff’s Department received permission from state wildlife officials to kill the lion. In 2004, a mountain lion killed a lone cyclist in the park and hours later mauled another passing cyclist who survived.
