    It's unfair for you to use the word stalking. In the video you will clearly see that he was approaching her babies. There were two kittens on that path thought he was walking towards. I don't see where he was videoing anytime before seeing the kittens. By using the word stalking you were putting that mother cat in a very bad position and allowing people who think it's okay to shoot cats to go out and try and kill her. As a news source you guys should be a little bit more responsible and educated

    So this guy only discovers at the end there are some pretty good rocks he could throw? That would been the first thing I would've done but it seems this guy was more interested in videography to post on MNmore instead of leaving mama cougar far behind. You know mama wasn't going to leave her young for very long she was just doing what all moms do in nature when it comes to their offspring. Next time dude forget taking the videos grab a rock and run like hell!

    Let's be clear - and honest - what the video does not show (clever editing on his part) is that the guy was actually photo stalking the lioness's kittens before she asked him to GET AWAY FROM MY FAMILY RIGHT NOW YOU CREEPY TWO-LEGGED SICKO. A natural and reasonable response. Ask any mother. (She was a good deal more restrained than I would have been in the same situation.)

    I've said this many times before on MNmore: if a cougar or mountain lion stalks you and follow you like this ... pick up a rock and throw it in the cat's direction as that will usually startle them into running away. They are not like lions or tiger. Cougar / mountain lions are more timid, but by backing away or running away, you are acting like a prey. Make yourself look big, scream, and throw rocks at it. Throwing rocks is not meant to hurt them, but to scare, startle, and intimidate them. If you travel through 3rd world countries and street dog(s) start following you aggressively ... do the same thing. Often time picking up a rock will send the signal, but throwing it for sure will scatter the animals. If you appear scare and weak, but running, then they become a predator and you're their prey. For cougar / mountain cats, the sound of the rock will break their laser focus on you and divert their attention elsewhere. Animals in nature are very keen to unexpected sound as their first reaction usually is to flee for survival. Still, anyone running through the backwoods needs to carry bear spray / mace and possibly a small belt knife.

    Many news reports say this was in Slate Canyon. That is incorrect. This is Rock Canyon. Both Slate Canyon and Rock Canyon are east of Provo, but Slate Canyon is not used much. It's steep with no road. Nope. This is Rock Canyon. Whoever introduced that basic factual error ought to be spanked. Many media just copied.

    if cougar had a small change, it would hurt him even kill him. but ıt couldnt take risk to attack a full grown man without getting any wound. he had a camera in his hand and beast cannot know if is a weapon or not. he could even scared cougar with a little rock.

    Dumb dudes like him probably think this is some cool experience. He should be dead or severely injured. Trying to get your viral 15 mins can seriously cost you your life or limbs with wild animals. If he was really afraid he wouldn't have been filming that. If she wanted him harmed she wouldn't have lunged. She would've knocked him swiftly on his ass and made quick work of him. Amateurs.

    I remember , In my teens i was off roading in piece of desert near my house on my trail bike , Suddenly after climbing a sand dune i noticed 7 to 8 wild dogs, They started growling on me, I stopped the bike , And started shouting loudly as i could, And very slowly started to move, From that place, If i had panicked or run, They would have attacked me, As a prey!
