Just three weeks after a cougar attacked and killed a Chihuahua that was leashed and going for a walk in the Hollywood Hills, another Chihuahua was injured in the Silver Lake neighborhood.
The attack occurred around 11:55 p.m. Friday in the 2700 block of Ivan Hill Terrace.
Ring video provided by Jeff Kelly shows the cougar, which had a tracking collar, walking in front of his home just as his neighbor was leaving to walk his dog.
Moments later, the Chihuahua named “Taz,” can be heard yelping. The owner picks up his dog and runs back into his home.
As the cougar continued roaming the street, the dog’s owner went outside to scare it away.
The video shows Kelly stepping outside to talk with his neighbor.
“It bit up Taz,” the dog’s owner tells Kelly. “We’re going to take him to the vet right now.”
The video shows the mountain lion continued to roam the neighborhood even after the attack.
A GoFundMe started by a friend indicates Taz “received some pretty deep bite marks and scratches that required stitches and medical attention.”
Authorities believe the mountain lion that attacked the dog in November was P-22, the famous tracked and collared cougar which was first identified in 2012.
