BBC News, BBC News
A mountain lion found it was no match for a Jack Russell terrier which trapped it up a tree on a farm in the US state of South Dakota.
The dog's owner, Chad Strenge, heard frantic barking near the family's farm in Colman, Moody County.
He discovered the 150lb (68kg) male lion, also known as a cougar, clinging to the top of a tree with 17lb (8kg) terrier Jack at the bottom.
Mr Strenge, helped by his dog, chased the mountain lion and shot it dead.
