Re: OMG: Utah Hiker gets confronted by Cougar.. One Pissed of Cougar.
Who the fuck would go running in the woods in mountain lion territory?? Totally insane.

Aside from that, there are mountain lions in the northeast -- upstate NY, and New England. I have very good friends who are outdoors men and have hunted all their life... who have seen them. I think they've always been there -- I've read old newspapers online with sightings of them from the 1940's and 50's.

Also know a girl who lives on the Mass/NY line and once saw a gigantic black cat leap across the road in front of her in one bound. Interestingly enough, in those old articles - they mentioned huge black cat sightings.

Wild shit..... all around.

throwing a rock is fucking useless.. it may or may not work.


if the dumbfuck hiker had a gun, all he need to do was fire a warning shot and the mountain lion would run for the hills...


i bet the hiker was a libtard, which is why he didnt have a gun in the 1st place.

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.

That cougar would be dead after I caught a whiff of it’s aggression. I’d Swiss cheese it then cut its head off to spike on top of a crudely fashioned walking stick I’d then make... kinda as a trophy, because I know for damn sure I’m not going to be filming it. I’d want proof.

Rabies or was illegally raised/released by someone, its too late in the year for cubs.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79423122


There are 2 cubs clearly visible in the beginning of one of the versions of the video. The cougar also seems to be trying to scare the guy away instead of acting like it was stalking prey. It seems to me to be a mom defending her cubs.
 Quoting: ToppDog


Makes sense. I got the impression it was trying to chase him away rather than make a meal of him too.

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


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.

While elk hunting I had one follow me for hours until he got sleepy and went to take a nap. He was just curious I guess. Needless to say there were no elk to be found.

Why didn’t you just shoot it? Let me guess, you don’t believe in guns! Sad! If you run at it, it would run away! If you keep backing away slowly it shows your afraid, you need to run at it, or preferably, shoot the fucker. Who leaves the house without a sidearm?

First, I would carry a handgun in the woods.

Second, if I was boneheaded enough NOT to have a weapon on me, I would throw rocks at the Kitty Kat until it departed. Animals cannot throw rocks and predators are startled that other creatures can. If you run you will only die tired.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79452256


At the end the guy looked like he reached down to grab a rock and the cat took off running.

The cougar was just escorting the guy out of it's territory. It could have made a meal out of the hiker anytime it wanted, but it chose not to. That's what the bluff charges were all about. To keep the guy moving in the right direction, away from her babies.
I'll agree to be "woke" when they wake up from their stupor.
