    “Terrifying ordeal”… It must have been terrifying for the poor cougar who thought her cubs were in trouble. She was doing what is in her nature and seeing as she was in her environment…. just saying.

    But white people insist on being in love with the outdoors.

    She's not stalking him, she's telling him to leave. This encounter went as well as it could have.

    Because the cougar is staving. Normally they would stay clear

    This is why when you're in the wild you should either be armed with a gun or bear spray. Bear spray works on all land predators not just bears

    The paws wide grabby grabby thing is threat gesture.

    She didn't want a fight that might leave her injured she just wanted him gone.

    Idk, I might have killed her if she was coming at me like that. I know she's protecting her young and all, but that dont mean she wont try and f u up.

    This is why you bring a gun with you. Out in the woods you are not on top of the food chain.

    Lol Fing city boys 🤦🏻‍♂️ she wasn't stalking him she was chasing him away from her babies. Ounce he was far enough away she was just waiting for the right moment to run back to her Cubs. She had no intention of killing him if she wanted to eat him she would have rushed straight at him when she was in the bushes however the only cougars that are dangers to adult humans are juveniles just kicked out by mom and the really old and thus starving. Either can be easily dealt with by an adult but both will attack due to inexperience and starvation. Cougars are ambush predators, her slapping her paws on the ground are the human equivalent of I've got a gun get back. LASTLY an adult Cougar especially a mom won't hurt you unless you threaten it or it's cubs, if you see one yell like a man not a little bitch ANIMALS REALLY CAN SENSE FEAR jump up and down slowly moving away and throw rocks if necessary. And yes just walking around a corner and seeing cubs will be seen as a threat by a mother cougar. Carry bear mace a stick and a knife the woods aren't peaceful places they're dangerous and bueatiful.

    Thats not stalking. It's just an encounter. If momma wanted she would've killed him. Very very few people ever live to tell about being stalked by mountain lions….they are silent as F!, you wouldn't know till you're neck is punctured.

    That remind me of the time in 2013 when a Rottweiler dog had a stand off with me pin to a neighbors door. All I could do was remain calm and by the grace of God it finally walked away.Psalms 91-14,I will protect him for he acknowledges my name. To this day I am still traumatized,when walking through apartments I am often looking for stray dogs. It happened again, someone dog was out loose and I had to jump over a neighbors patio gate and bruised myself badly.
