This is the last thing you want to see on the trail ahead of you while hiking!
Want to get your heart rate up while while hiking?
I think getting this close to a mountain lion may do a better job than any terrain you might encounter!
What an intense and incredible encounter, especially when the mountain lion starts walking towards him.
The footage was uploaded by Youtube user Trevor Rasmussen, who says in the video description that the footage was taken in Glacier National Park. In the comments section, he says the encounter was definitely a “code brown” type of situation. I don’t think anyone can blame you on that, Trevor!
He’s definitely lucky he spotted this big cat when he did. Personally, I probably would have been backing up a bit more than he did. Kudos to him for standing his ground.
Remember, always pay attention to the environment around you anytime you are outdoors, because you never know what you may run into!
