Cougar kills foal near Acton, officials say
Authorities believe a mountain lion prowled onto a ranch early Sunday morning and killed a newborn horse.
Residents at the home in the 32000 block of Angeles Forest Highway near Acton heard a noise about 3 a.m. and found a trail of blood leading to nearby hills, said L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy Daryl Bonsall.
The state Department of Fish and Game was asked to investigate.
