Mountain Lion Over Trail

Mountain Lion (cougar, puma) - High Sierra Trail, CA

This would scare the shit out of me. The way it blends in to the background is cool.

 

"What are we supposed to do?"

 

"I don't know. I don't think we are supposed to run."

 

Real pros.

If you do see a mountain lion, no matter how thrilled you are to be one of the very few who gets such an opportunity, stay well back, and take the encounter seriously.

  • Seem as large as possible. ...
  • Make noise. ...
  • Act defiant, not afraid. ...
  • Slowly create distance. ...
  • Protect yourself.

I'd go .45. One shot in the air, see if it runs-it would, then unload on it if it came at me.

If it gets to the point where I need it, I probably won't be able to cap myself but always make sure I never empty it.
