Exam Shows Mountain Lion Had Eaten Doberman

A mountain lion killed in Glendora last Sunday by state game wardens was in "fine physical health with a stomach full of Doberman," a medical report by state wildlife investigators has concluded.

Department of Fish and Game officials also said an examination of the canyon where the cougar kept its food proved that the animal was responsible for killing dogs and other domestic animals in the San Gabriel Mountains foothills of Glendora and Claremont. Animal remains in the food cache included hair and hide from a cockapoo that had been missing four months from the same residence where the mountain lion seized a Doberman pinscher last Sunday, they said.

The examination of the cougar's remains by the State Wildlife Investigations Lab showed that it weighed 127 pounds and was seven feet long. Officials said it would be donated to the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History.
