thank you, george. thanks for joining us tonight we begin with the mountain lion attacking a 6-year-old boy in cupertino sunday state fish and wildlife released this picture, you can just make out the cat's paw print. now, we can report it's been captureed and killed. tiffany wilson is live with the story. tiffany? >> it was around 9:00 this morning the dog picked up fresh tracks of the mountain lion. if you take a look, you can see the dogs as they began tracking several days ago. and they followed those tracks for about 90 minutes throughout the dense forest. now, the dogs did tree the cats 130 yards from where the 6-year-old boy was mauled. wildlife officers say the cat became very aggressive, looking into the eyes of a warden,
preparing to pounce at that warden. and then, at this point, they made the decision to euthanize the cat. initially they set out traps hoping to catch the cat alive but that did not work. they say they're as certain as they can be that the 65 pound male mountain lion was the one that mauled the 6-year-old but they're going to have to wait until they get tests to confirm. >> it's been harrowing. cats don't move in a linear motion they go back and forth. so it has felt like a wild goose chase we weren't sure we're going to get it. these dogs are very good at what they do. and we had a wonderful team here of many agencies working together all of us cared about getting this cat. >> now, the carcass was taken to sacramento where there is a wildlife center and will be tested for rain ease
