The cougar is a wild animal and normally looks to deer elk and even moose for its food supply. But under certain conditions when the snow is deep or the cat is old and may have bad teeth, it will prey on anything that it can, including humans to satisfy its hunger pains. Twice in all my adventures into the wilds, I have been stalked by a cougar, and both times came out on the winning side. Until one has experienced one you don’t really know what it is like to be hunted by the critter for its next meal. Be careful when walking especially if the snow is deep. Don’t run, make yourself look as big as you can and make lots of noise. Good luck!
