Man Stalked by Cougar Out in Utah Wilderness

A wild cougar stalked a Utah hiker for a full 6 minutes over the weekend in a terrifying ordeal which the man videoed. Here’s the one-minute, cuss-words-edited-out version (the full video is down further): The predatory cat was obviously ticked and followed the man, lunging and striking at him several times. It happened in Slate Canyon near Provo.

The cougar finally ran away after the hiker threw a rock at it.
The full video below shows the entire encounter (warning, it includes all the cuss words as well): WATCH VIDEO
