PEOA, Summit County — A Summit County man shot and killed a mountain lion at his home, but not before the animal killed the family's Yorkshire terrier.

Summit County Sheriff's deputies responded Monday to the residence near 5100 N. Woodenshoe Lane, near state Route 32.

Deputy Zagg Taylor said mountain lions usually leave full-sized dogs alone, "but a smaller dog, … who knows?"
