Yesterday I opened the latest issue of “Sierra”to find an article about someone who encountered a puma. Here is some advice on what to do if you discover a puma stalking you:
-do not run
-turn and face her
-raise your arms and do whatever you can to look fierce
-scream as loud as you can
-if you know you are in puma country, carry a loud horn with you
-do not walk quietly–surprising a puma is not good
-remember they are more afraid of you than you are of them–really!!
Of course, the big problem with making a lot of noise as you hike is this: you won’t see any wildlife at all.

One thought on “Pumas are going to prey”
Great to find you and this fabulous blog here. WTG! That puma’s mouth looks dangerous.
