Former NFL player Derek Wolfe kills mountain lion with bow and arrow
Wolfe, a Super bowl champion with the Denver Broncos and a sports radio host, retold the experience and showed off a photo of the lion's bloodied corpse in an Instagram post on Thursday. Wolfe, 32, said he received a call Tuesday about a male mountain lion who killed two local dogs and was living under a woman's porch.
After finding a mule deer the animal apparently killed, Wolfe said he hiked 9,600 feet up a mountain in the Rockies until he came across the big cat. Feeling "exhausted" and "dehydrated," he said he used his bow to drive an arrow through the mountain lion and later dragged it down the mountain to his truck.
The picture he posted shows Wolfe, who is 6 feet 5 inches tall, carrying the enormous feline, which he estimated to weigh around 195 pounds.
