It appears that a mountain lion attacked a Mazda car in or near Eureka in northwest Montana several days ago.
KRTV received an e-mail from a viewer named Joe, with the following pictures and this brief explanation:
"This happened Monday night in Eureka. The car was attacked by a mountain lion during the night. They think their cat was hiding underneath the car or in the motor. Some incredible pictures."
The speculation about a mountain lion is likely due to the type of damage, and the paw-prints on the windshield and on the ground.
We are attempting to locate the owner of the car in order to find out more about what happened.
