As The Daily Mail reports:
Three mountain lions have been killed in Arizona after they were found feeding on human remains near a popular hiking trail.
Pima County Sheriff’s Department said Tuesday it had found human remains at Pima Canyon Trail in the hills north of Tucson.
The three lions, which are not believed to have harmed anyone, were killed after human remains were found in their droppings, Arizona Game and Fish Department said.
The police said investigations were ongoing into what had happened to the victim.
Though usually shy, Mountain Lions have been known to sometimes prey on human beings. Authorities are awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine exactly what happened.
