Utah Hiker Stalked by Cougar for 6 Minutes, Miraculously Survives
A man venturing out on a hiking trail in Utah stumbled upon perhaps the worst thing you can find in the wild – a large cat predator – following him for 6 terrifying minutes.
Kyle Burgess posted full video of the terrifying encounter that took place over the weekend at what he says was the Slate Canyon Trail near Provo, Utah – footage that shows him passing a few cougars along his way race … to come face to face with their mother.
As soon as he recognizes that the mountain lion is hot on his trail, he begins to slowly back up, trying not to scare the beast or make it pounce – but it has rushed at him several times!
Burgess tried different methods to scare him off, including the use of foul language. Watch the video – you can’t blame him under these circumstances. Not that there was anything funny about it … BUT, we admit it, Kyle repeatedly calling out a wild animal that might have killed him, “man” … made us laugh.
The cliché of getting “fat” against Mother Nature seems to have saved her ass. That and a rock well thrown!
Just a wild video, and Kyle should have needed some fresh shorts.
