Re: OMG: Utah Hiker gets confronted by Cougar.. One Pissed of Cougar.
There were reports of a cougar, or mountain lion trekking across Wisconsin a few years ago - and it ended up in a Chicago suburb.

The cops finally shot it in an alley as grade school kids were walking to school.

It was a great story.

Nobody in Wisconsin would believe a cougar was stalking around the country.

Don't ever go out into the deep woods not armed with a gun.

I used to chase mountain lions around on my dirt bike when I was a teenager.

They were always super afraid of people and ran off.

I would never go in the woods without a gun and COUGARS ARE THE REASON. IMPORTANT !!!! THERE ARE HUMAN COUGARS in the woods as well. Around any big city, you will find dirt bag criminals living in the woods and they will rob you in a second and get away with it. Almost happened to me and my brother.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79452256


Male mountain lions are 150-200lbs with vertical leaps of 20ft. If they can kill a bull elk, then a man should be no problem for them. Think of how fierce and tough a domestic tomcat can be and times that by 10.

Up here in the mountains of NW Montana...I just saw a
clip of this on our local news....and MAN THAT GUY IS SO LUCKY!

The newscaster remarked that the reason he was NOT attacked
was that he NEVER TURNED HIS BACK TO THE BIG CAT. He then
emphasized to the viewing audience--who were just warned
YESTERDAY of a grizzly bear on the campus of our local
university--that you need to make yourself appear BIG to
the animal and never turn your back.

I think I would have done exactly what this guy did.
I am also thinking this is a momma mountain lion with
cubs nearby--and that is what triggered the encounter.

Great catch! Thanks for posting this!

Back in the 1980's my spouse and I took a bet from a
buddy that we couldn't "make it" without civilization for
the winter and donated his rustic cabin at the 6,000 ft.
level of the Cascade Mountains. We had no running water
and had to carry it--as well as no electricity.

On one of our walks we came across a DRAG MARK. It was an
indentation in the soil of about 200 feet (3 feet wide)
going UP HILL in the mountains--the "mark" of a very large
mountain lion dragging his "kill" (probably a huge moose
we spotted a couple days earlier.) The strength of these
animals is Herculean and is NOT to be underestimated.

Wow...that video brought back some memories. (We lasted from
Thanksgiving through the end of February when a record-breaking
blizzard ended our "bet.") We rode down the mountain to
a motel thanks to the Forest Service who came to get us
in a rescue vehicle that could drive OVER fallen trees.
We got to sit on the body bags they planned to put us in
if we didn't make it. Wild winter, that was!

Fascinating video. I suppose the guy did the next best thing to not having a weapon, which was exhibiting behavior that didn't get him hurt.

It reminds me of an old video. This girl, a very hot blonde, walks up to a bunch of wild cheetahs in Africa. And they don't attack her because they're mindfucked. Because NOTHING WALKS UP to cheetahs. Ever. They don't know how to react.

She expertly shows for the camera what behavior will make a big cat go in for the attack, and what behavior will make them back off.

Re: OMG: Utah Hiker gets confronted by Cougar.. One Pissed of Cougar.
The American lion's scientific name is Puma concolor, and is sometimes referred to as "the cat of many names." The scientific name was changed from "Felis concolor" in recent decades. Mountain lions once ranged more extensively than any other mammal in the Western Hemisphere. Historically they could be found anywhere from the Canadian Yukon to the Straits of Magellan — over 110 degrees in latitude — and from the Atlantic seaboard to the Pacific Ocean. As a result, each native tribe and group of European explorers gave the cat a different name. Today, mountain lions are listed in dictionaries under more names than any other animal in the world. Writer Claude T. Barnes listed 18 native South American, 25 native North American, and 40 English names for the same animal. Depending on the region and native language, common names for the American lion include: mountain lion, cougar, panther, puma, painter, el leon, and catamount.
