Colorado Trail Runner Kills Mountain Lion with His Bare Hands

Mountain Lion

Getting in touch with nature can be one of the more appealing aspects of outdoor exercise. Though, a recent close encounter of the wild kind ended up turning deadly when a cougar attacked a runner on a Colorado mountain.

On Monday afternoon, a trail runner was making his way through the West Ridge Trail on the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, when he was attacked and bitten by a mountain lion. The victim was “attacked from behind,” according to a report.

A struggle ensued in which the runner — who did not have a weapon — killed the lion by suffocating it.

  1. When I first saw this, I thought, what a brave and courageous man. I don't know if I could have the presence of mind to kill a cougar that was trying to kill me. Hats off to this man, and nobody had better ever doubt that he has balls of steel.

    1. Yes and choked it to death. He must be a strong man.
