Mountain Lion Attacks Bailey Boy [Update]

[UPDATED] A mountain lion attacked an 8-year-old Bailey boy last night.  The boy’s injuries were said to be serious and was kept at a hospital overnight. 

The boy was playing in his backyard in the Burland Ranchettes Subdivision when the boy ran next door to visit a friend.  While he was running, the mountain lion attacked the boy and bit his head.
