In the early 80's I was on a weekend hiking trip in the mountains on northern NM. Early one morning while packing up camp one of our group went away from camp to tend to morning business. About 50yrds from camp he was attacked by a mountain lion while doing his business. Had we not been close enough to intervene our hiking partner would have been a missing person for sure. 70 stitches, loss of vision in his left eye and loss of function in three fingers he was lucky!! Having been a witness to this first hand I never go into the wilderness without a way to defend myself. Beautiful creatures for sure but they can be deadly when provoked or hungry.
He /she might have just sat there because it was an older puma ! The fur around the face looked very gray to me . Kinda like my dogs as they aged .
I guess when humans build there homes in a Cougar / Panther / Mountain Lions habitat, this type of thing is going to happen. As for me, watering the garden and a cougar drops in to say hi. I reckon I would get an electric fence or something.
Is the extended and fatuous intro really necessary!?
What a beautiful cat!
I can't help but notice you forgot to mention a cougar will kill, and eat a human with no problems.
who needs to be told that?
poor baby puma i wonder if he escaped from a circus or something like that, i really hope he is okay and that someone rescue him to a sanctuary where he could be save. 😗😗😘😍😍
Monica Molina you’re goofy as hell, these animals live in the wild in Florida and people build homes in panther and alligator territory
Here in the mountains of PA I saw a mountain lion perched on a rock at the Post Office where my daughter catches the bus . It didn't move until I started honking my horn @6:05 am . WOW ❗ Luckily I always drive her across the road and sit till the bus comes . The people upstairs from me , even though I don't have anything to do with them , I informed them of this but they still allow their son to walk by himself to the bus stop . I may not like you for what you do but I'd be damn if I allow any animal to attack your child and not render help . Parents be aware of the surrounding , Be Careful and Respect Others because you never know ❗ Lions , tigers and bears Oh my ‼ 🙋 Stay Woke
wow do u think u could stretch this video out a little more...
or panther 🤣
kill all cougars, so humans can invade their habitat...
The panther gives zero fucks who was watching, he was the top predator there.
Intruder? Not a chance. It's an honored guest and yes of course as is the case when dealing with any wild animals caution is advised. This wonderful creature gave the family memories to cherish for the rest of their lives. 👌
Killing animals to make space for more useless humans. Feels bad
I dislike it when you show random images of tv shows or movies in your videos to make a point. Please, just show related images of the actual event. It'll be lots more interesting... Good comment though concerning the situation of the Florida panthers.
Linda I agree show the subject not random videos and pictures that aren't about the actual story 😊
What a cute kitty cat!
A 10 year old cannot ID a cougar? What an idiot. The adults are alos idiots for thinking it safe because it wasn't afraid of humans. THAT is exactly why it was extremely dangerous. They SHOULD have killed it.
Wrong again moron. You cannot HUNT them. You CAN kill them if they threaten you. DIPSHIT
It will be back for pets or kids we have them in Alabama and cyoty and red wolf's near the woods cyoty are so bad don't go outside with out gun deffenetly not at night will be packs right out side the door never trust wildlife you my be what's for dinner.and now also bears.
It isn't endangered idiot (Linda). Only MORONS wait until it attacks a child.
WRONG Carolyn, per the LAW you can kill it if it is on your property and posses a threat. Now, rent an IQ
Patrick EH They are protected, you can’t kill it. AND if you do, you’d better not let any one know as you’d probably get more time than killing a human!
I walked out of our cottage on Sanibel Island about 5am one morning a few years ago and as I started down the path thru the Sea Grape I suddenly was confronted by four large Panthers. They simply stared at me and I began backing up. Never turning my back on them, I held eye contact and literally backed up the stairs back into my screened in deck. They slowly turned and disappeared into the Sea Grape shrubs. Needless to say It was a few days before I ventured out again for my morning walk on the beach.
Don't worry Spike. Sanibel isn't large enough to support 4 grown panthers. Soon it will be only one left on the island.
With a good shot make him a bob tail he will stay in the woods.
Jeffrey is inbred, he has a bob brain
yeah cause shooting everything makes for a civilised society, fucking gun happy retards
U have the pet dog all tied up and chained outside when you know dangerous animals prowl around. These pets can be easy prey
that was just a random clip, how could you not realize that with all the bits of film from TV shows?. the dogs were probably inside with the people or the cougar would have eaten one.
they are wild hillbillies man
Not good, that cat is scoping out the neighborhood pets for e a s y food. I love these cats, but, too close for comfort.
well thats life, big things eat the little things, get over it. remember you took their land away from them if you dont know what that feels like ask a mexican
Looks like my cat.
I wonder if this animal had a history of human interaction at some point in its life. Hence the calm, almost trusting behavior.
there's only 100 left? well let them eat a few people- there are too many child abusers and other evil doers that we can feed to them.
Heidi Elle they’ll eat humans if hungry
Heidi Elle could be. It could also have just eaten and was feeling rather good/calm. There’s less than 100 in the wild. They’re next to go extinct I think.
That's scary but cool at the same time. Where I live we call them mountain lions.
@gary jones Not true. When my phone wasn't working in Venice, Fla USCellular told me it's because it's impossible to get a signal because of Floridas' mountains. No joke. I dropped my jaw ... and my phone.
Florida's average elevation is 11 ft above sea level.
"Mountain lion" wouldn't make sense in Florida, because there are no mountains in Florida; the highest points there barely qualify as hills. LOL.Did you know that there are at least 40 common names for this cat? Where I live most people call them "cougars", but "mountain lion" is also widely used, and I've run across "catamount" from time to time. "Florida panther" is a misleading name because they're not members of the panther genus, which leopards (Panthera pardus) and jaguars (P. onca) are. "Mountain lion" is also misleading, because the lion is also a member of the panther genus, specifically P. leo, and cougars are not. Florida panthers are, like other cougars, members of the puma genus, specifically Puma concolor. Puma is one of the common names for this cat, and because it's also the name of the genus it should probably be the only name...but I like cougar.
what a beautiful creature! Hope God protects him so that somewhere in the future his kind will survive.
