Amid the search for the mountain lion that mauled a six-year-old boy near a Cupertino Winery on Sunday, wildlife advocates say California’s drought may have been a factor in the attack.
The boy upgraded by doctors to good condition Monday, and was released from the hospital. He was attacked around 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon on a hiking trail along Montebello Road near the Pichetti Winery. The family was about two miles away from the main picknick ground at the time of the attack.
