A six-year-old boy was reportedly attacked by a mountain lion while on a sidewalk with his family in Texas.

The attack happened in Big Bend National Park on a sidewalk between a restaurant and the Chisos Mountain Lodge where the boy and his family were staying, the boy’s father, Jason Hobbs, told KOSA.

Jason said the large cat “clamped” onto his son’s face, but let go after he stabbed it in the chest with a knife he was carrying.
