Ex-NFL player Derek Wolfe kills massive mountain lion terrorizing community in Colorado.

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Ex-NFL player Derek Wolfe kills massive mountain lion terrorizing community in Colorado.

Super Bowl champion Derek Wolfe has revealed how he hunted and killed a massive mountain lion using a bow and arrow – before falling ten feet off a rockface with the 195lb carcass. 

The former Denver Broncos defensive end said he had been asked to hunt the animal after it 'wreaked havoc' in a Colorado neighborhood, killing two dogs and a mule deer.

It had already killed two of her dogs and she was 'nervous what he might do next'.  

Wolfe said after finding the dead deer he hiked over 9,600 feet up rough terrain to chase down the big cat and was 'exhausted, dehydrated and cramping'. 

However, he eventually found the animal and killed it with his bow and arrow. 

The lineman said he had to crawl backwards down the mountain, dragging the carcass with him, to get it back to his truck, falling 10 feet off a rock face in the process. 

Wolfe shared a photo of him lifting up the carcass, which looked to at least match his six-foot-five frame and he estimated it 'probably' weighed 195 pounds. 

The former NFL player regularly posts photos of his kills on his Instagram feed, and is a keen hunter and fisherman.

Wolfe played in the NFL between 2012 and 2021. He was a second-round pick, 36th overall, by Denver in the 2012 NFL Draft and spent eight seasons with the Broncos. 

He played the 2020 season with the Baltimore Ravens before calling time on his a career after injury ruled him out of the 2021 season. 

Several ex-NFL players commented on his post, shocked at the catch. Former Rams star Michael Brockers wrote: 'That's crazy bro.' 

However, some social media users were not impressed with the catch, slamming him for the hunt.  'Glorifying a so-called tough guy taking out a majestically big and beautiful cat,' one Twitter user wrote. 

'Too bad the endangerment laws are not fully enforced in CO. And oh - keep your friggin dogs indoors at night.'

'Grant is not a city. When you live in rural Colorado you sign up for living WITH wildlife,' another claimed. 

'There are guidelines for NOT making your dogs a food source. Go back to Kentucky.'

One blasted Wolfe for posing with his kill, writing: 'If it had to be done, I understand. No reason to pose with the corpse though.'

Wolfe, a Super bowl champion with the Denver Broncos and a sports radio host, retold the experience and showed off a photo of the lion's bloodied corpse in an Instagram post on Thursday. Wolfe, 32, said he received a call Tuesday about a male mountain lion who killed two local dogs and was living under a woman's porch. 

In a different post, Wolfe told a guide he went on the hunt with that he "almost died on the mountain." 

Wolfe was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2012 and went on to have a 10-year career in the NFL. He won a Super Bowl with the team in 2016 and joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2020 before retiring two years later from the league. Wolfe finished with 316 tackles and 34 sacks in his career. 

He currently works as co-host of "The Drive" for 104.3 The Fan, a radio station covering Denver sports.
