Former NFL player Derek Wolfe had a busy week.

On Thursday, Wolfe posted on Instagram that he had killed a mountain lion in Colorado earlier this week after it was ‘wreaking havoc in a rural neighborhood.’

According to his post, the giant male mountain lion had already killed two of a woman’s dogs and was living under the porch. Wolfe said he hiked up 2,500 feet and down the other side of a mountain, then back up again, back down and finally, back up another 9,600 feet.

Eventually, Wolfe said he was ‘exhausted, dehydrated, cramping’ and killed the mountain lion with a bow and arrow. He then had to crawl backwards with the lion down the mountain to get him in the truck, falling 10 feet off of a rock face on the way down.
