If You Choose Fight Over Flight, Do Not Wear Sandals
A Utah man who was working in his driveway, suddenly came face to face with a mountain lion. He was working by the fence, heard something, looked up to see an adult mountain lion. The man kicked out at the mountain lion. The mountain lion responded by swatting at him. Then the man kicked the mountain lion in the face. The mountain lion's tooth punctured his Croc like sandals, hurting his toe.
Division of Wildlife Resources Conservation Officer Bruce Johnson said they are on the lookout for this mountain lion, as his behavior is consistent with that of a high-risk animal. The mountain lion was in a residential area, and was not fearful of the man. Neighbors were warned of the situation, and asked to be on the lookout and call authorities if they see the mountain lion.
