Just heard on radio that a jogger in colorado was attacked by a mountain lion. They say he killed it by choking it to death. Sounds like a heck of a fight if it was grown.

So that is about 80 pounds give or take. Definitely not something to take lightly.

Hope the guy has a speedy recovery, but that is definitely some manly sh*t...

I have a big skin graft scar from a cancer scare when I was a kid. It literally takes up like half my torso. I sometimes tell people if they ask about it that I got into a fight with a grizzly bear... they often think I am dead serious and telling the truth. LOL.

Amazing story! That man was very lucky to have survived. I love wildcats...at a distance of course.

Did this mountain lion encounter David Goggins, out getting some light exercise, or has he got some competition for "Most brutal runner in existence"?

Either way, for once this is a story of a person taking out an animal in a justified manner. There are only three really good reasons to kill an animal. One is to feed oneself, one is to put it out of its misery if it is injured, and the other is to defend oneself. And not only did this runner meet condition three, they did it BARE HANDED!

I bet they have never been successfully mugged while running. If a mountain lion cannot succeed in jacking this individual, there is no way some scallywag would be able to manage it!

I saw that.

I’ve had housecats that weighed more than that cat.

So now the city slickers have decided it's no big deal. It was ONLY a 40 pound cougar, poor orphaned kitten.

Yeah, right. Have you ever seen a bobcat or a lynx? About the same size. Want to fight one? Their paws are bigger than your hands with some mighty sharp claws on the end, and if one were intent for your jugular, you would have a massive fight on your hands. This was no mean feat and none of you belittling it would likely have survived. This was not a widdle tiny kitten. It was a forty pound buzz saw intent on killing the jogger.

I read 24 lbs.

A 40 pound cat is something entirely different.

There are various poundages going around depending on where you read. It is exacerbated by the fact that half the articles are in metric and have treated back and forth. But when you actually read the original account, 24 pounds does not make sense. The cat had the joggers hand and arm in his mouth and he was unable to jar it loose. They went down an embankment and he tried to hit the cat with sticks and a large stone, but could not get enough leverage. Finally he got his foot on the cat's windpipe and managed to suffocate it. I have 2 17 pound cats myself, and 24 from 17 does not sound enough bigger to cause a problem. But 40? I think so. It would be formidable.
