Pit bull praised by Washington state neighborhood for scaring away large mountain lion


Residents in Vancouver spotted the big cat lurking earlier this week.

A police car spotted it once, but no one was able to catch it or chase it away until it caught the eye of "Harley," the neighborhood pit bull.

The 135-pound mountain lion was much larger than Harley, but that didn't stop the dog.

He managed to chase the mountain lion up a tree early Friday morning.

Wildlife officials eventually tranquilized the cat and removed it.
