A man jogging along the popular West Ridge Trail at the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space in north Colorado, near Denver, when he was jumped by a cougar. The cougar bit off more than it could chew however.
It leaped on the man’s back and bit his face and wrist. But the man fought back and managed to sufffocate the cougar, which weighed some 36 kilos. After killing the cougar the man jogged on and called to report the exterminated beast.
He has not been named to protect him from abuse from animal-lovers.
