Facebook- On on early morning nature walk we saw a gator, a snake, frogs, pretty birds, and had this unexpected encounter. (Warning…curse word at end!)
Conservatively, I could fill up one thousand adult diapers if I got that close to a mountain life. That’s conservatively. Bottom line, lots of poop. Tons of poop. Scary as FUCK. She had to for sure think she was a goner. We all did. When she was saying, “Oh my god” I guarantee she thought those were going to be her last words ever. I’m a little confused as to why the mountain lion didn’t attack her but good for her I guess. Also, wouldn’t your first instinct be to leap off the bridge thing she was walking on? It’s gotta be. Like that’s probably not the safest thing to do but I feel like my body would just leap before my brain caught up to what was happening. Mountain lion + me + small path = jump. She could be 50 feet up in the air and jumping is still the best alternative. Instead she just stood there. Most likely frozen in fear which is understandable but god damn.
