This guys is more of a man than any of us.
Getting attacked and eaten by a mountain lion ranks right at my number two spot on my list of the worst ways to die. I think getting eaten by a shark is the only thing that would top it. Because of this, I go to great lengths to avoid areas where mountain lions tend to live. Sure, I've fished in areas where I know there are mountain lions. Yes, I'm aware of the incredibly small likelihood one will actually attack. Some of us just have dumb phobias, okay?
So with that, when a Utah man is setting a foot snare in mountain lion country, inevitably, you're going to get one. Good thing there are men out there like this who know just how to handle such a situation.
Just get a load of this. Could you have handled this situation so smoothly?
Right about the time that thing hissed, I would've opted out. You have to assume with how prepared this guy was to deal with it, he's definitely been in this situation before. But still, the ninja tactic of using a bush to block the back paws has to be straight out of some hardcore woodsman bible.
