Nina Isaacs was visiting her mother in Boulder when the big cat showed up

A British woman got an up-close view of a large North American predator recently while visiting her mother in the foothills of Boulder, Colorado.

Nina Isaacs had the opportunity to film a mountain lion that spent more than two minutes right outside the glass door of her mother’s home.

In the video, you can hear Isaacs softly talking to the dog that was standing beside her looking out the window.

“I know. I know. We’ve got a cat here. That’s a big cat,” she says.

In the footage, you can see the cat walking in front of the window. It even pauses to look inside the house at Isaacs and the dog.

Jason Clay with Colorado Parks and Wildlife told 4 CBS Denver, “Lee Hill is most definitely mountain lion country, so residents there or most anywhere in Boulder should not be surprised to have a mountain lion around.

“Biggest take-away for people who see that video is they need understand they should take action and haze mountain lions away when seen around their home,” Clay said. “Don’t let them feel comfortable and protect your pets. Yell through your window, set off your car alarm, try something from inside that you feel comfortable doing to get the mountain lion to move along.”
