When a 75-pound-lion tried to enter Harrah's Hotel Casino's revolving door in Reno, Nevada, in 2012, police closed down the surrounding streets until it was tranquilized and apprehended, KOLO 8 News reported.

An 8-year-old boy from Bailey, Colorado was attacked by a mountain lion near his home last month.

On August 21, Pike Carlson was in the backyard of his family's home with his older brother, Gage, when the 65-pound lion appeared out of the blue, NBC-affiliated KUSA reported.

The animal bit Pike in the head. Then, the animal, still biting Pike, dragged him to a tree, where the boy was pinned down. Suddenly, the 8-year-old boy found himself fearing for his life.

While Pike was fighting off the feline, Gage ran back to the house to get help from their family. At the same time, their dad, Ron, came running out.

From there, Pike was brought the hospital where he received stitches and underwent two surgeries. He may need another to repair part of his eyelid, which was injured in the attack, according to KUSA. The family has also set up a GoFundMe to help cover medical bills. So far, they've raised $18,458 of their $50,000 goal.

The animal is no longer in the area

On August 26, five days after the attack, Colorado Parks and Wildlife released a press release confirming that the same animal, a 1-year-old male lion, had been removed from the area the following day.

CPW confirmed this with a DNA test. The lion and another 1-year-old male lion were euthanized after CPW confirmed they were also responsible for an attack on a goat, CPW said.

"It is reassuring to know that the mountain lion from both the attack and depredation of the goat was removed from the area," Area Wildlife Manager Mark Lamb said in a press release. "This male juvenile mountain lion was not only a threat to human safety, but obviously to livestock and pets as well."

Now, Pike is home recovering - and making jokes and serving up advice.

"No one try to wrestle a mountain lion," Pike said. "It is a cheater."
