MILLCREEK, Utah — A mountain lion has been euthanized after it attacked a trail runner Sunday morning in Millcreek Canyon, causing minor injuries.The woman was running with a friend on the Pipeline Trail around 8:30 a.m. when they rounded a corner and came face-to-face with the cougar that was also on the trail. This startled the cougar, and even though the two runners immediately started to back away, it leaped at them. One of the runners fell down and was clawed by the cougar on her leg, according to Utah Division of Wildlife Resources spokeswoman Faith Heaton Jolley.
