That thing is fast!!

Read somewhere it was a mother and had kits, but I could be wrong. Either way, not a confrontation anyone wants to have.

YIKES!

Yea, She does look back left and right halfway the clip so could be she was checking on the little ones.
But holy smokes.. what an experience.


Would a can of maze work in this case ?

Pull my large sheath knife to gut the thing if it attacks and walk away like this guy did. IF it attacks, it will claw and bite me a little before I sink the knife deep and hard into its chest to shut it down. If I had seen the young ones I would have hated to kill the mother though. But its stance and keeping distance was defensive not attack mode.

Any how many times have you confronted a large predator type animal??

Loud noises can work, but pain induced confrontation usually will get you chewed up. Predator type animals don't have the same fight or flight instincts as regular animals do because being an Alpha predator means just that, Alpha. The only real competition Cougars have are Bears, and we look no where as scary as Bears.

So lesson for all you Tree Huggers, when you going into the woods take a fucking firearm with you, there's things out there that will eat your scrawny ass.

What would I do?

THE OBVIOUS.

Did you see all those perfect sized rocks ALL ALONG the trail?

Pick up a rock and fastball it.

Even if you miss, that cat would get lost real quick.

That cat continue to pursue because that guy showed non-stop fear and kept back-peddling.

If you stood your ground and threw rocks, that cat would have fled immediately.

This ^^^

Cougars are very secretive, skittish, and afraid of people in general. Especially men, because they are bigger than women.

It's only when a cougar is very hungry or defensive or protective that they will be aggressive towards a person.

If you show obvious fear, it feeds the aggression. If you stand your ground and flail your arms and yell, they may not run away, but they will stop advancing to assess the situation.

Standing your ground causes doubt. And throwing good sized rocks will make them flee. Cougars are already afraid of people. And when you act as the aggressor, it sends them flying.

That being said, you don't want to do this if you are still CLOSE to their kittens, because the protective instinct is strong enough to override the urge to flee, if the threat to their kittens is imminent.

The only time you hear of a cougar attacking a walker or hiker (and it's almost always a woman) is when they are starving and the victim has their back to the animal. They prefer a sneak attack.

The behavior displayed by that cougar was "bluff charges". And not to be ignored. But acting afraid and back-peddling is what was encouraging those bluff charges. If you stop and grab a rock and throw it at the cat, it would flee. Or at least stop in it's tracks.

It is true that it is unsafe to stand your ground when dealing with an animal that is overwhelmingly large, like a Brown Bear. But when dealing with a Mountain Lion, acting afraid and fleeing encourages an attack. You are better off waving your arms and yelling and throwing rocks.

Guy at least had the sense to never turn his back to the cougar. Had he turned his back, he probably would have been attacked and bled-out on that trail. Thankfully, for his sake, by the end of the video he realizes that a big enough rock would scare it off.
