    I remember my boyfriend went to go in the Bush to go bathroom we were in the city but theres a piece of land full of Bush I seen this huge wolf his teeth were out and he was pissed my boyfriend had a few beers didn't realize the wolf wasnt far from him .I was further away but seen clearly with somewhat of light .I said dont talk walk slowly towards me I walked back slowly keeping eye contact with the wolf .its funny u did this thing I'm native so I use to give a couple howels to the moon for respect to the wolves just something I always did growing up I'm very close with nature .anyway he finally got to me I said now look back and he saw the wolf with teeth out and how close he was dinner .I dint think there was any that close to the city but yes there was .it wasnt a dog either this boy was big ....once we were driving in a van going 60 on a stretch of road where there are deers it's like Russian roulette you have to pay attention. So it was dark country and there was light enough light this huge deer my boyfriend didn't see but it literally came right up to window on driver side that how big we started into each others eyes the deer and me he stopped instead of going right threw the door it was so quick cause we were driving sixty I only can say God intervened. That moment theres nothing else to say he wasnt standing on road he bolted but I didn't see that only his huge face in the window .

All of a sudden a bigger version came out of nowhere, like wow man, and just started coming at me. It was at that moment I realized I should record instead of having both hands free. I did it for the gram bruh!" OMFG. . . China's gunna whoop our a**. . .

    She was a momma and her cubs in her eyes we're in danger any mother would have done what she did and the dude in the video was right had she wanted to kill him she would not have kept making him walk further and further away from her babies she would have ran up and this would have ended badly

    For anyone wondering, the Cougar is scared of him, he was never really in any danger unless he turned his back and started running, at which point he turns into prey. In fact, never turn your back on a Cougar (or any big cat) if you happen to see one, you'll end up in a fight. All the cougar's charges were bluffs, if she really wanted to get into a fight and try to kill him, she would have just lunged at him from the brush before he even saw her, however the cougar knew she'd most likely lose a face to face fight as big scary human is big scary human to them.... Same with most bears who are much bigger than cougars and humans, they are afraid of humans and will only mess witcha if you are acting in a threatening manner, and even then, the Black Bears charges are all bluffs anyway.
