 Quoting: Neo*_*


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.

Ran the intruder off her turf, refused to back down, and when she knew she had neutralized (neutered) the threat, she hoofed it back as fast as she could to her kits.

That's how a real mama acts.

Respect.

That mama mountain lion was protecting her cubs.

Wild animals are losing territory. She was doing was mama's do, because humans kill so many mountain lions with cars, guns, poison. She seriously wants to keep mountain lions on the planet.

Shit my pants.

I guess the guy did the right thing...don't turn your back on them but retreat, although I think if the cougar was in a hunting mode, he would be attacked or dead regardless. This one wasn't in a hunting mode but a defensive mode.

Good thing his aim was good in rock throwing.

Re: OMG: Utah Hiker gets confronted by Cougar.. One Pissed of Cougar.
Happened to me years ago up on Sparrowhawk Trail near Tahlequah, OK. I have mentioned it before. The same running trail I posted a video of the other day. State Game Wardens said, "Ah nah, it was a bobcat. Ain't no cougars in Oklahoma."

In my case, the cougar just stood there looking at me like, "sup, you a sasquatch? Bear? Wookie? I just stood there like a dumb ass staring at it saying in a calm voice, "Well shit, one of us is about to die." While my heart pounded in my chest and I fished my Spyderco from my waistband. We were about 100-150 feet apart.

I've been up that canyon a hundred times. I don't go up there without Counter Assault bear spray. There are bears, also... but works on big cats.

OMG!!! Scary!!! He reacted the right way tho. NEVER turn your back on a mountain lion hoping it will just go away. The runner walked backward watching the mountain lion ad it's movement. Not facing it makes the cat think you are vulnerable. The runner also tried to appear larger like a bigger foe to contend with. He also didn't run. If a person runs? The lion will chase faster and physically attack or maul you (possibly to death)...you would be prey just like a cat and mouse. I live in the mountains of Southwest. I never hike without bear mace or my 9mm just in case. I'm a small female so it will hopefully protect me from human predators too. :)

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17010454


I don't believe you. every animal I have thrown a rock at runs or flys away immediately.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79405208



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.
