Colorado runner attacked by a mountain lion
FILE - This May 7, 2015, file photo from a remote camera provided by the National Park Service shows an adult male mountain lion known as P-41. Authorities say the mountain lion that managed to cross a Southern California freeway and make its home in the mountains north of Los Angeles had rat poison in his system when he was found dead in Oct. 2017. The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area announced Tuesday, Dec. 19, that P-41 had six compounds of a rodenticide in his system, although it's unclear if that caused his death.

Reason 999 why I don’t like animals of any kind, as a matter of fact anything with four legs I’m not a fan of! So a Colorado man was out for a jog on a trail on the West Ridge of the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. The mountain lion attacked him from behind and managed to bite his face, legs, and arm. The man reportedly used his bare hands and suffocated the animal in order to defend himself. The man was able to get himself to a hospital after the attack and his injuries are serious, but not life-threatening. What would YOU have done in that situation? Me? I’d probably be dead.
