A mother fought off a mountain lion that attacked her five-year-old son while he was playing with his older brother outside his home in western Colorado on Friday, the local sheriff said.
西科罗拉多当地警长表示,一名母亲周五击退一头攻击她5岁稚子的山狮,当时他正与哥哥在家门外玩耍。

The unidentified boy’s mother heard screams and raced outside the house northwest of Aspen where she found the cougar on top of her son, the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office said.
皮特金郡警长办公室说,这位身分不明的男童母亲听到尖叫声后,马上跑出位于亚斯本西北部的家,这时她发现一头美洲狮正压在她儿子身上。

The woman "was able to physically remove her son from the mountain lion" and the boy’s father called 911 as he drove his son to hospital, the sheriff added.
这名妇女“实际上是从山狮那儿拖出儿子“,男童父亲则在开车送儿子去医院时拨打了911。

A hospital spokeswoman said the child sustained injuries to his face, head and neck and was in fair condition. His mother was treated for injuries to her hands and legs and released.
一名医院女发言人说,孩童的脸部、头部与颈部受伤,但情况还好。他妈妈在治疗手部与腿部的伤后已经出院。

Sheriff’s deputies and a law enforcement officer from the U.S. Forest Service found the mountain lion and put it down, the sheriff said.
警长说,该郡警方与美国林务局一名执法官员找到了山狮,并予以捕杀。

Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said there have been two, possible three, fatalities related to mountain lion attacks in the state since 1991, while some 16 people have been injured by cougars since 1970.
科罗拉多公园与野生动物管理处女发言人珍妮弗丘吉尔说,自1991年以来,该州有关山狮攻击致死案件有2起,也可能是3起,而自1970年以来,被美洲狮所伤者达16人。
