Felis Concolor cuoged it

A Colorado runner was attacked Monday by a mountain lion during a trail run in the northern part of the state that resulted in puncture wounds to his face, arms, legs and back and the death of the animal.

Rebecca Ferrell, a spokeswoman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, tells The Coloradoan the man was running alone at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space near Fort Collins when he was attacked from behind.

The runner, whose name has not been released, fought off the cougar-- killing it in the process-- and hiked out of the area and drove himself to a hospital. The Denver Post reported that the runner suffered serious injuries that included facial bite wounds and lacerations to his body. He is expected to recover.

Wildlife officers searching the trail found the juvenile mountain lion's body near several of the runner's possessions. They estimated that the animal weighed about 80 pounds.

“The runner did everything he could to save his life. In the event of a lion attack you need to do anything in your power to fight back just as this gentleman did,” Mark Leslie, Colorado Parks and Wildlife Northeast Region manager, told KKTV.

The last mountain lion attack in Colorado was reported in June 2016 in Pitkin County.

“Mountain lion attacks are not common in Colorado and it is unfortunate that the lion’s hunting instincts were triggered by the runner,” Ty Petersburg, area wildlife manager for CPW, said. “This could have had a very different outcome.”

    True story:

    A family friend was bow hunting in Southern Oregon. All of a sudden the hair on the back of his neck spiked up. He turned around and saw a cougar ready to pounce on him. He fortunately carries a sidearm when he bow hunts, so he was able to kill it before it actually sprung on him. I didn't find out exactly how big the damn thing was, but it was big enough for him to dislocate his shoulder lifting the head up for a picture. The picture was badass. Side note: Oregon has now banned people from carrying sidearms when bow hunting...dumb fucks in state congress need to bow hunt without one and see how long they last...idiots. Anyway...he still carries one when he bow hunts, along with every other sane person.

    M'eh.....the Throbber has fought off cougars nearly twice four times that size.


    You're confusing the Throbber with @IrishDawg22

    @YellowSnow and I have had this discussion before regarding height/weight proportionality.

    I'm curious how he killed it? Guessing it was snowy, and probably mixed in a few blitzes with the slot corner out of the dime.

    Cougs don't perform in the snow. They just don't.

    There's a world of info right at my finger tips. He suffocated it.

    I have a few buddies who are timber cruisers. They worry about those things more than anything else, except for maybe weird people.

    All of them carry heat into the woods, and I don't blame them. They also take dogs with them if nothing else to give them a heads up. Those things are deadly af.

    I've regularly walked 1-5 miles at a time alone in the woods for work going back to the early 90s (thousands of miles by now) and have exactly one cougar encounter. It was on a short section of stream running right through a town. It ran away from me but still scared the shit out of me. I was, like everyone in my field of work, carrying a walking stick with an small hook on one end and a flimsy knife with no point and a dull, serrated blade.

    There are dozens, hundreds at times, of people out walking in the northwest woods alone for work every day, almost year round, with no dog or weapons (by policy). While the number of fatal or dangerous cougar encounters is rising quickly, it's still at zero.

    Dogs are nothing but cougar bait unless you have multiple noisy ones with you.
    Not sure I agree with you on that point. They hear and smell the thing long before you're in a position to say "oh shit, it's a cougar".

    And the guy who had his stomach eaten last May? The guy on the bike? 1>0.

    I'm not saying it's an epidemic; but if I'm in the woods often, I'm going to be prepped. Being eaten alive is on the creep's priority list of things to avoid.
