This mechanic in Los Angeles had an interesting start to his workday.
A cougar came down from the mountains and surprised an unsuspecting mechanic Friday morning.
Hank Bakerfelt considered himself a lucky guy after the close encounter.
DNR officials came shortly after the incident and tranquilized the 75-pound female cougar.
In the video, you can see the sedative beginning to kick as the big cat begins to stagger. It was released later that day.
Bakerfelt said, “I hear the stories but you never think it’s going to happen to you.”
What a way to start your the day. A cougar knocking you down is stronger than coffee!
