  • Backpackers come face-to-face with mountain lion in nerve-wracking encounter

    1) Glad we don't have this to worry about in the ADKs
    2) I seriously doubt I would walk around the blind bend in the trail after a mountain lion just walked that way seconds earlier

    Are you kidding me!? They're 20 feet from a mountain lion and saunter around a blind bend? Those are two lucky fools.

      Very lucky indeed! People are not on the regular menu of a lion and perhaps this cat was just as curious about them.

        Thank goodness, I was worried this was going to turn into a "mountain lions in the ADK" thread.

          If enough people read the thread it will turn into that. The discussion seems to pop up every few years.

        There's a great person-alone encounter with a mountain lion in _The Animal Dialogues_ by Craig Childs. It stalks him in a canyon and keeps trying to get behind him. The whole book is a good read for anyone interested in wildlife.
