Colorado man chokes mountain lion to death with his bare hands after being attacked

Colorado man chokes mountain lion to death with his bare hands after being attackedExercising in the wilderness always comes with its share of risks, but one Colorado man got far more than he bargained for when a mountain lion attacked him during a trail run earlier this week. The unidentified man suffered serious injuries in the attack, but managed to escape with his life thanks to some quick thinking and a good bit of luck.As the Coloradoan reports, the man was running in Horsetooth Mountain Park when he was attacked from behind by what park staff identified as a juvenile mountain lion. The big cat bit the man's face and arm but he was able to shake himself loose, at which point he strangled the lion by wrapping his hands around its throat.The animal suffocated and died, and the man sought immediate medical attention for his injuries. Wildlife officials note that the man's response was appropriate and a good example of how you might be able to save yourself from an animal attack under the right circumstances."The runner did everything he could to save his life,'' Mark Leslie of Colorado Parks and Wildlife said in a statement. "In the event of a lion attack, you need to do anything in your power to fight back just as this gentleman did.''Mountain lion attacks on humans are incredibly rare. Many areas of Colorado have stable mountain lion populations in the wild and incidents between humans and the big cats are scarcely reported. In this particular case, the man came out on top, but luck probably played a big role.According to reports, the mountain lion was estimated to weigh around 80 pounds and officials believe it was less than a year old. Adult mountain lions can easily top 150 pounds and it's not unheard of for males to top 200 pounds or more. Put simply, it wouldn't be wise to pick a fight with a mountain lion and expect a result like this one.

Colorado jogger attacked by cougar kills it in self-defence

Colorado jogger attacked by cougar kills it in self-defenceA Colorado jogger fought off a cougar in the foothills of Horsetooth Mountain on Monday, suffering severe bites before he killed the wild animal in self-defence, authorities said. The man, who was not identified, was jogging on a trail on the West Ridge of the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, a mountain park about 66 miles northwest of Denver, officials said. A juvenile cougar attacked him from behind, biting and clawing the man's face, back, legs and arms, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Larimer County Department of Natural Resources said in a joint release, late on Monday. It was not disclosed how the jogger killed the animal, and no one from the CPW or the Larimer DNR was available for comment early Tuesday. The runner was able to get to a local hospital, officials said. His injuries were serious but not life-threatening, they said. The animal's body was recovered near the trail and the jogger's dropped possessions and taken to a CPW lab for a necropsy, officials said. “The runner did everything he could to save his life,” said Mark Leslie, CPW Northeast Regional Manager. “In the event of a lion attack, you need to do anything in your power to fight back, just as this gentleman did.” Cougar attacks have caused fewer than 20 fatalities in the United States in the past 100 years. Sixteen known attacks have occurred in Colorado since 1990, officials said. “Mountain lion attacks are not common in Colorado and it is unfortunate that the lion's hunting instincts were triggered by the runner,” said Ty Petersburg, area wildlife manager for the CPW in a statement. “This could have had a very different outcome.”
