    Not many people can say they strangled a mountain lion to death with their bare hands!

    I'd be interested to know if it still had blue eyes.

    Similar case: killing a brown bear with bare hands.
    News of Bosnia and herzegovina, 2013:

    Source:
    https://www.24sata.hr/news/hercegovac-48-golim-rukama-ubio-medvjeda-koji-ga-je-napao-316549

    Translation:
    Blažo Grković (48), from the village of Vrba near Gacko (BiH), bare handed strangled a bear who was attacking him on Friday afternoon while keeping sheep flock on a meadow. In a tough fight, Grković suffered injuries all over his body, and the teeth of the bloodthirsty animal passed through his arms and legs. He ended up in a hospital in Foča and now is out of the danger for life, has reported

    As he sat with the sheep, a great bear ran through his sheep flock and went to Grković, who had only a small ax at that moment in his pocket. This man caught up with the animal that had sprung from his arm, but Blažo managed to overcome it. He confirmed that he felt well and that he was not even aware of how he did this, briefly describing the fight "chest to chest". He can not remember how long it took.

    "At one point, my one hand was in bear's paw, and I held the other hand on bear throat until it fell down," says Blažo.

    His wife Mira, after visiting the hospital, confirmed that Blažo could move, but he had problem moving better with his hands.

    "Everything will be fine, it's important that Blažo is alive, and wounds will heal," Mira says, adding to joking that she knew her husband was brave but not stronger than the bear. She points out that the clothes he had on him one can conclude that the fight was terrible.

    "All Blažo 's cloths were bloody, and there were pieces of meat on it," Mira said.

    After strugling the bear with his hands, Blažo managed to call his boss Bozidar Elez, who called for immediate help.

    I thought for a moment reading the title there had been a terribe case of mistaken identity but thankfully it was just a mountain lion. ba2411d7aa7544bf6f80c8011bdc219f9cfe27f8816ff0be41d68331d510ba0b.jpeg

    I live just south of where this took place.
    This wasn’t a kitten Mountain Lion.
    They darted two others and moved them back into the wilderness. He took quite a beating in the attack.

    It's usually the young ones just starting out that do this kind of attempt to feed itself.

    I would not be interested in wrestling with 20 claws and the teeth of a 1 year old.
