Utah Hiker Stalked by Cougar Doesn’t Want Animal Harmed
Even though he fell in the net of killing a cougar … the hiker who was stalked by the big cat for more than 6 minutes says he doesn’t have an ox with the animal.
Kyle Burgess is the guy whose voice you heard during that terrifying wild encounter in Utah, and he tells TMZ that this whole ordeal was actually his fault … albeit unintentionally.
Kyle says he stumbled upon what he thought was an adult bobcat while hiking the Slate Canyon Trail near Provo, and that’s why he pulled out his phone to record.
Of course, as he quickly and creepily learned, he was a cougar … and Kyle says he fully understands why the the adult protected his young.
“He was doing what he was supposed to do” … that’s how he sees it, and that’s why he doesn’t want anyone – wildlife officials or whatever – to harm it. animal.
As crazy as it sounds, Kyle says he’s not afraid to return to the scene of his contact with danger. Look at his explanation … it makes sense, but we doubt most people would.
Not after being harassed by such an angry cat.
