Man VS beast...can be scary. We learn from this video...do not mess with a mama cougar.
From KSL in Utah:
PROVO– A Utah man was greeted by a mother cougar while jogging on a trail in Slate Canyon near Provo over the weekend. In an alarming video, jogger Kyle Burgess yells, “C’mon dude! I don’t feel like dying today!” at the cougar as she follows Burgess for six minutes.
Burgess accidentally came across mountain lion cubs on the Slate Canyon trail. Before he knew it, the mother cougar began approaching Burgess. In the video, the cougar is seen and heard hissing and pretending to charge the man.
“This is scary. My heart is racing. Dude, ok. This is not fun,” Burgess says on the video as the cougar growls. “Go away! Go away! Go back to your babies!” For six minutes, Burgess made himself look big, never turned his back, made loud noises and eventually threw a rock at the cougar, causing her to run away.
Be careful where you jog
