A hiker in Utah took a video that shows a mountain lion chasing him for almost six minutes.
Kyle Burgess, 26, said he was hiking at 5 pm in Provo’s Slate Canyon Park when he saw four cougar cubs. Then, the apparent mother of the cubs started chasing him.
He told CBS News:
You see the two cubs and one kind of runs away, but then I didn’t realize the mother was there and that’s when I knew it wasn’t a good situation to be in.
During the swear-word clip, Burgess made loud noises, roared and slowly walked away as the big cat followed him, but he kept his distance.
Many pointed out that in the more than six-minute video you can see that the man approached the animal and was only trying to protect his young.
