Found the original article. I still don't know how this got by me. Running from a lion is never a good idea, but this could have been a problem cat because it was hanging around an occupied dwelling.

KINGMAN - Authorities have called off the search for a mountain lion suspected of attacking a Prescott man on Sunday night.
Arizona Game and Fish officials says partial tracks were found Monday, but tracking dogs were unable to pick up the mountain lion's scent.
The suspected attack occurred near the Snow Drift Mine area. Andy Bell says he was outside his home just after dark Sunday when he heard some rustling in the bushes. His flashlight revealed what he believed to be a mountain lion about eight feet away.
Bell says he ran for his home, but was pounced on from behind near his truck. He believes the mountain lion hit its head on the trailer hitch and fled as Bell rolled under the vehicle.
The 30-year-old Bell was treated by a doctor for a shoulder scratch that he says came from one of the lion's claws.
