Man Survives Cougar Attack By Strangling It

Cougar

A man going for a run in Colorado narrowly avoided death after being attacked by a cougar.

The cougar, weighing at least 80 pound, attacked from behind and inflicted wounds to the face and wrists. The man managed to get free, and then strangled the creature with his bare hands, killing it.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife tweeted out that the man needed a few days before publicly speaking about the incident.

 

In a statement, the manager or CPW NE Region Mark Leslie said, “In the event of a lion attack, you need to do anything in your power to fight back, just as this gentleman did.”
