Colorado Man Kills Mountain Lion With His Bare Hands After Being Attacked

A jogger on a remote trail in Colorado killed a mountain lion with his bare hands when the wildcat attacked him on Monday.

Reuters reports that the unidentified man was not only able to fend off the cougar in the foothills of Horsetooth Mountain, about 66 miles northwest of Denver, but strangled the big cat to death before getting himself to a local hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

“There was some wrestling going on and the cat did latch onto his arm but he was able to choke it," Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Rebecca Ferrell told Reuters.

Fewer than 20 people have been killed by lions in the U.S. in the past 100 years.
