An attack by what is thought to have been a mountain lion has killed an area resident's longtime pet. Kayla Capper, who lives on Tree Ranch Road in Upper Ojai, said she walked outside early Monday morning and discovered one of her two potbellied pigs had been killed during the night.
The pig, a female, had been dragged out of the small house in which it was kept and badly mauled, she said. The other pig, a male, had received some deep scratches but was expected to survive.
