She snorted her cubs up a tree then turned her body towards me and showed teeth. By now my gun is pointed at her. In my head I said "please don't make
me kill you." Right then she backed down.
Had you been between her and her cubs, the situation would have been much
different. I, too, once had an experience with a black bear while
picking huckleberries. Turns out he didn't want any trouble, and I sure
as Hell didn't. I froze, he stopped, pondered me for a moment,
decided I wasn't lunch, and ambled off.
There certainly wasn't any telepathy going on on my part...unless "OH, #!" , repeated over and over counts as communication.
You said you got lucky. Yes, yes, you did.
The Disneyfication of the natural world has much to answer for. Every year, we hear the stories, some nit wit with more Bambi watching than actual
experience with wild life (they're called wild, for a reason...), walks up to the "friendly" moose, deer, or other, and proceeds to get kicked, gored,
stomped, or otherwise mauled.
Not saying that's what you're
doing. But telepathy with a cougar? Mmm...not buyin' it.
