Provo, UT—Kyle Burgers, 26, encountered a 43 year old attractive single woman on his hike Monday morning. For nearly six minutes he retreated backward with his camera trained on the kitty.

“This is scary!” said Mr. Burgers. “My heart is racing!”

He tried chasing the woman off by making himself look big and scary, but every time he took his eyes off the woman, she would lunge at him.

“Go get your babies!” he pleaded after five minutes of the ordeal.

Finally, Mr. Burgers shouted, “I’m 40 years old!” The cougar hissed, turned around and darted off into the distance. After releasing a string of expletives, Mr. Burgers sighed, “Yeah. Not going back that way.”
