    Utah Man Stalked by Puma After Filming Her Cubs

    a touch off topic I know, but can't help mentioning the video on the news last night of a hiker being stalked by a mountain lion for about six minutes, at one point the lion advanced quickly, paws up, pretty scary.

    And of course, what was the first reaction? Let me walk backwards and record this for my Instagram feed.

    Smh.

    You’re right. I’d have gone tinder for sure!

    Could have been quick enough for Tik Tok. But not sure what music you'd put behind it.

    Maybe Pink Floyd's "Run Like Hell?"

    But the Mountain Lion was going to be the one doing the swiping.

    Go to 2:50 for the moment the hiker soiled his pants.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Utah County *rarely* hears language like that.

    Why didn’t he just pick up a nice sized rock and go all Sandy Koufax?

    at one point he did, and it sent the cougar scampering...that would have been my primary thought, though I'd have been more like Stu Miller than Sandy Koufax...

    I haven't seen someone that afraid of a cougar since Ashton Kutcher met Demi Moore.

    LOL. My high school was the Cougars. I strike fear in the hearts of many.

    Not Koufax, who didn't like to pitch inside because he was afraid he'd kill somebody. I'd go Gibson or Drysdale or Marichal.

    The guy made a huge mistake right from the start. If you see cougar cubs in the wild the last thing you do is stick around to get a better look. You get the heck out of dodge and pray you don't see momma. He actually did pretty good to be in such a high stress situation. After quite a bit of distance was covered and it was apparent the animal was going to continue to follow (I know this takes major cojones) he should have stopped and began pelting it with rocks. This is what ran it off in the end. It would be very cool to see one in the wild but not that close. If I hiked out there I would definitely carry animal spray. Mountain lines and grizzlies you just don't mess around with. I have hiked almost 1,800 miles of the Appalachian Trail and don't have to worry about those things thank goodness although I have been lucky enough to see 10 bears and two rattlesnakes but I do not carry anything for defense. On the east coast the most dangerous thing you run into are the humans.

    This is my favorite post in a long time. I nodded furiously.

    Mods: Maybe all the posts on this topic over in the Congressional thread can be moved here?
