Hooray, We Survived a Shipwreck! Wait, is That a Cougar?!

Two boaters have quite the tale to tell after an extraordinary survival story.

Two fishermen went out crab fishing last Saturday in a small passage between Vancouver Island and Quadra island. It’s not a night they’ll soon forget.

Check out the CTV news coverage video (not compatible with some adblockers):

The two were lucky to survive their wreck and make it to shore (although one of the men had to ditch his clothes, as they were weighing him down). As if surviving a boat wreck weren’t enough, though, the men also had to deal with a cougar that was seemingly stalking them during the night.

Eventually, the coast guard was able to locate the men, and they were taken to the hospital for recovery.
