I saw one like this where a guy was being stalked by a cougar, but he was armed with a pistol. He fired a few shots at it, don't think he hit it but eventually scared it off. The thing is if he'd only just put his phone away and concentrated on aiming, he'd likely have hit it.

I doubt he wanted to hit it, just scare it away.

Why did the guy keep recording video of it when he could have been chucking rocks at the thing, or doing anything else to drive it off? SMH ...

I'd criticize the guy, but he survived and I probably wouldn't be able to contain my instinct to run away.

And as we know well, running is the worst thing you can do.

This one likes to sleep all day and play all night. It’s too hard to be perturbed though.

I know what you guys mean about cats. A few years ago I was on vacation in Provence in a town called Sablet, We were out for a walk and had climbed to a lookout at the top of the hill the town is built on. There is a nice lookout there and we were admiring the view when this ferocious cat came out of nowhere and I was afraid that it would eat my leg


Lesson: Don't pet a cat you don't know
