Rafters make use of paddles to fend off mountain lion
SALT RIVER, Ariz. – A group of rafters in Arizona had to use their paddles in a fight for their lives against a mountain lion.
Gila County officials are urging caution after last week’s attack in a remote area of the White Mountain Apache Reservation.
The attack occurred “21 miles downstream from the Salt River bridge, on the White Mountain Apache Nation – which is the north side of the Salt River – in an especially remote area,” Gila County Animal Care & Control Program Manager JC Castaneda said.
