  • Nice Kitty!

    This happened in Utah this past weekend. The extreme profanity in the Instagram copy has been edited out. The guy never turned his back on the cat. Probably a good thing he did not. The actual start of the clip is a few seconds in, after the guy first spots the two cubs in the road. He was out for a run....

        I came across a wildcat once while yakking when I got out to take a break and rest. They aren't real tall but it looked like a pitbull on steroids. Needless to say my first chance I jumped back in my yak and didn't stop until I got back to my truck and never went back.

          So, I guess throwing a rock at it was the right thing to do. Up to that point the cat looked dead set determined. Wonder if he needed to do some laundry when he got home?

            This same thing happened to me when I was shed horn hunting., some years ago... Female with two full sized yearling kittens she was teaching to hunt. thought I would be a good meal. I changed their mind, but it was nip and tuck for a second or two.

              He handled it better than alot would, most people would get in panic mode and run and most likely that video would've been cut short. I had a incident with wild boars a few times but luckily I detected them pretty quickly at a distance and when I heard the grunting I was able to step out onto open ground.

                While watching the video I must have said "throw rocks" about a hundred times. You couldn't ask for a better supply of rocks. The bluff charges were meant to get him to run. When a big shepherd attacked I pretended to pick up a rock and that stopped him. He circled and I faced him with the pretend rock raised. The owner ran up more scared than I was. You can expect something like this in the wild but why people keep dangerous animals as pets is beyond me.

                  He may have not survived:

                  “In that situation, with that mother mountain lion who’s being very protective, as you can tell, I would not take my eyes off of her and I wouldn’t bend down,” Root said. “You want to remain large and you want to remain making a lot of noise. And that’s what he did.”

                  Root said “the second you drop to be lower, that could trigger a response of attack. Even though I don’t think she was out to get him, she wanted to make sure he was not in that area.”

                  Think what you must. I could kill that cat with a rock.

                Me too, and get another in off hand.
                this is THE only time I will call a random rock specimen a “hammer stone”
                and pocket that phone and get ready to fight. Just tell me the story, Ill believe you.

                  Wildlife officials said if you drop down to pick up a rock, you make yourself smaller, and that can very well trigger the attack. They said he did everything right....

                  Thats all well and good, you fight there way and Ill do it my way.
                  I like to trap bobcats. I harvest the Toms and the old Queens and release anything I think is kitten-ish. That also teaches the kitty of “one”place not to step again, making me improve my technique and sets.
                  I have caught and released 2 young queen lions, with help.
                  With My life experiences I have found that in a fight, all beasts second guess themselves when there nose is smashed and they quit bitting when I keep shoving my hand down there throat.

                  So six solid minutes of defense? As some point about the two minute mark...i would have relied on my punting skills! Mountain lion season...what's that?

                      Great video. I'm amazed at the speed of the animal when it bluff charges. Those paws flick out and down in a split second. No way to defend that if it's right on top of you. I once was in open water with a shark. Slapped my hand down in the water. It shot off at unbelievable speed, luckily away from me. Had it done that towards me...no chance.
