Yesterday evening, a mountain lion pushed his way through the screen door of Clifton Sanches’ home in El Paso County, Colorado, near Colorado Springs. The home owner declined to contest possession, and fled to a neighbor’s house to phone police. The local sheriff’s deputies adopted the New York City Police Deparment’s philosophy of declining to prosecute minor cases of burglary, and proposed waiting for the lion to leave on his own. Perhaps adverse possession laws are not so favorable in Colorado as they are in some other states, and the feline intruder, after an hour or so, got bored with things and made his exit, breaking through a window screen on the way out. Someone filmed his departure.
