    Capable killing machines no doubt, but I think they’re mostly scavengers.

    My childhood home was in a big plot of forested acreage. We learned from a pretty young age what to do when you see a Cougar because we would see them often. You also learn that they wanted to kill you, you would be dead. Absolute beasts.

    My buddy got this big guy a few years ago on his property after killing some of his sheep. Probably about 150lbs.

    First step is to ever avoid seeing a cougar. Keep kids and dogs close to you, travel in groups. Make noise when hiking to not startle them, if they hear you they will generally leave the area.

    If you do run into a cougar...dont run, it triggers a natural prey drive to chase. Stare it down and make yourself big and loud. Throw rocks, waive sticks etc. They really dont want to ever get hurt so if they think that they might have a fight on their hands they will just leave. If they do attack, go for the eyes.

    Cougar attacks are incredibly rare. They’re really not trying to fuck with humans.

    The fatal ones that occurred in Washington and Oregon this year were the first in 94 years and the first recorded for those respective states.

    When you consider how much outdoor activity is going on in the PNW, those are pretty staggering figures.

    Still best to know what to do should you encounter one, though.
