Note to self: No night/twilight hiking for a bit, m'kay?
Dunno... It's true though.
I got goosebumps of fear and memories of excruciating pain when the drill started.
LMAO- That is awesome!
Best. video. ever. 'I'm not going to write you up today'
Ha ha ha!!!!!
Has someone already posted this? Best in-flight instructions ever!
lulz, had heard mention of it, but hadnt actually seen it.
Yes, that video rocks.
I spooked a young female mountain lioness early one morning about 11 years ago while getting in my car to go to work. I think it was around 4-4:30am and still very dark. She caught my attention by jumping over the neighbor's fence and didn't see me standing next to my car. I stood still, thinking she would wander off, but she happened to start wandering in my direction, still unaware I was there. So, I yelled, "hey!" before she got too close. She sunk low to the ground and froze, looking around for me. She was about 60 feet from me at that point. I waved an arm to let her know where I was, and she stared at me for a few seconds before running off into the bushes. She was pretty close to the size of the one in that video, maybe slightly smaller.
Wow. No thank you. Seen bobcats around here, but havent actually seen a lion. Apparently they are becoming more numerous now though, sine theyre not allowed to be hunted anymore in CA.
Well, simular to 'Hakon and the bear' you'll likely never forget it
Wait, there are lions native to CA?
Well mountain lion...
more in the cougar/puma class I guess.
There are alot of them here, they survived the era of being hunted, and it is now illegal to hunt them in the last ten years or so in CA, so theyve become alot more numerous, almost common.
There is alot of protected wild-life space adjacent to populated areas here, where they hang out, and they sometimes overlap the edges so to speak.
Theyre pretty dangerous too, I'm glad Wulf that your encounter was a good one. They can be pretty dangerous to encounter; black bear is actually alot more predictable.
I had the advantage of seeing her first. They attack in stealth; when they don't have the element of surprise in their favor they are far less likely to attack, especially a grown man. If she had been older and bigger... I'm not sure what decision she would have made. It was a pretty exciting way to start off the day, though.
