Video shows ‘roaring’ man scare off charging mountain lion near Pyramid Lake

 This guy was taking a stroll at Pyramid Lake near los angeles. By sheer accident he saw he was being stalked by a mountain lion.



This reminds me of a story told to me by a co-worker back in the late 1970's.

John was his name. He said he was in his teens and he and his dad went hunting in some woods. I don't remember where this was at.
He was talking to his dad, and he asked him,"Dad, what do we do if we run into a bear?"
His Dad said, Son, just throw shit at him.
So John said Shit? Where we gonna get that?
Dad says, Don't worry son, just reach back, it'll be there!

  1. I live in the UP of Michigan where we have lots of wolves, bears, cougars and other scary critters, but I haven't been chased by a cougar since I was in Luige's Bar in Calumet. ---ken

  2. Years ago I walked to my deer stand in the dark & had a feeling something was following me, walking out later there was a cougar track in everyone of my foot prints, never walked to my stand without a loaded firearm again.
