A 5-year-old boy was out on a walk with his mother and grandparents near the Northern California coast when a mountain lion pounced.

The big cat attacked Jack Trexler, pinning him to the ground. The boy had gotten a bit ahead of his family when the attack happened but his mother was close enough to pounce herself, according to an account sent to USA TODAY by the boy’s father, Jay Trexler.

Suzie Trexler charged the animal, causing it to let go of her son and skitter away, Jay Trexler said in a statement on Thursday. The attack happened two days earlier near a farm where the family lives in Half Moon Bay, about 30 miles south of San Francisco.
