Some may think that this guy should have gotten on his bike and fled the seen. The truth is, when encountered by a mountain lion, you should never lose site of it, stand your ground, make lots of noise, and fight it off if it comes to that. Mountain lions are very fast, powerful and sneaky. It will definitely gain the upper hand if you run away and lose site of it and allow it to pounce on you from any direction.
We don’t think taking a video of the encounter will help you survive a mountain lion, but it certainly allows other people to gain a first hand perspective of what encountering a mountain lion may feel like! Watch the video and turn up the volume at 2:50 as the lion lets out a powerful growl that will send chills down your spine.
