The happy owner of Eva, a 2-and-a-half-year-old Belgian Malinois, is Erin Wilson of Trinity County, California. Just moments earlier, they had been enjoying a peaceful walk by the river when suddenly the calm day had become dangerous.
A mountain lion allegedly sprang at Erin while howling and tore through her jacket, according to the Sacramento Bee. Erin called out for Eva because there was no one else nearby, and the devoted dog ran to her aid.
As of Erin Eva bravely approached the mountain lion, “hitting that creature quite hard,” and diverting the big cat’s focus away from Erin. The mountain lion, however, outmatched the dog and “latched on to her head,” inflicting severe pain.
The big cat was quickly defeated by Erin using rocks and wood as weapons. She also enlisted the ᴀssistance of a pᴀssing driver to help her, who used pepper spray to neutralize the wild animal.
The courageous dog survived after being taken to the hospital, despite all odds. To ᴀssist with Eva’s medical costs, Erin set up a GoFundMe page. She claims that her hero is recovering and that the medical professionals are “optimistic.”
