This bad motherfucker got attacked from behind by a mountain lion while he was running and suffocated that cunt of a cat to death. I personally carry a @halffaceblades SHPOS on me when I run, and people have joked that it’s silly and unnecessary. Most of the time they’re right. I lost a dog to one of those beautiful killing machines in Colorado, and I’m not taking any chances. #respect! #teampeople
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Wildlife officials say a man who fought off a young mountain lion on a northern Colorado trail killed the animal by choking it.
The man was running alone near Fort Collins on Monday when the lion attacked him from behind after the movement apparently triggered its hunting instincts.
A spokeswoman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Rebecca Ferrell, says the man told investigators he choked it and an examination of the animal confirmed that.
Ferrell says he did exactly the right thing by fighting back as hard as he could. Since he was just out for a run, he didn’t have anything to help him other than “sheer will.”
While it’s probably a fair assumption that none of his training has been to simulate what to do in the event of a wild animal attack, the man managed to transfer over his skills. After being approached, and subsequently attacked, by the wild animal, the guy’s instincts kicked in and he managed to get on the cougar’s back and lock in a rear naked choke.
The agency isn’t identifying the man because of its investigation. He was hospitalized but is expected to make a full recovery.
Mountain lions attacks are rare. Sixteen people have been injured and three killed by mountain lions in Colorado since 1990.
