I would say this is one tough man who was also lucky. He won this round, barely!

Thankfully I think it was a young mountain lion? 80lbs? If it was an adult it wouldn't be such a good outcome.

No question, a full grown weighs up to 180 pounds., no human can match this alone. A lucky man, yet tough enough to survive the attack. He must have been torn up good. Imagine an 80 pound dog, never mind a Mountain Lion. I do not imagine he will go out there again any time soon. A lesson learned the hard way.

I got attacked by a couple of geese once, came away bloody. Nasty buggers.

So did my brother, as you say, nasty buggers. He was with his Grandchildren, he said he feared for their safety, all was well, he ran away with them.

The real question here is, what was Chuck Norris doing in Colorado to begin with?

I wouldn't go hiking without some sort of weapon or defensive tool on me.

When ever me and my dad go mountain biking, we always keep bear spray and air horns on us for this reason.

My friend carries a gun and her little terrier dog who recently fended off a coyote.

Ha, a little terrier is called a "snack" by coyotes. One of mine was.

i've had geese too, great watch animals but anything with teeth is going chew up a bunch of them. My neighbors dog picked mine off one and two at a time.

I keep a gun handy around my rural property when my kids are loose now since I followed a mountain lion down the road last year. They are getting more populous, the California city people voted a law preventing any hunting of them. Now they are showing up in the cities.

They are the true natives of the area, man is the encroach er. Man or woman should be careful and use their brains, especially in the country side.

I grew up in San Luis Obispo and still visit my folks there often. The natural environment is brilliant and there are great hikes in the hills, but I always have an irrational fear of having a run in with a mountain lion. From what I can tell, they very rarely attack and when they do, the recipient is almost always alone. That said, there are two instances that I can think of where more than one person was present during an attack.

I’ll find some links in a moment.

I used to run in a local park that has seen an uptick in coyotes. Individual coyotes tend to keep to themselves, and there was no indication that a pack was active, but it was unsettling to hear one howl nearby at 0500. I always carried a firearm during my early morning runs.

Smart man, protection from both kinds of animals.
