PHOENIX — A mountain lion reached through the bars of its cage and attacked a 5-year-old boy who was waving a stick at the animal, authorities said.

Sterling Borchers was treated at a hospital for scratches on his chest and a 3-inch bite on his arm.

The boy and his father were with a volunteer cleanup crew at the Phoenix Zoo on Saturday, authorities said.
