You never expect to see a vicious wild animal while in the woods, until you do. Could you imagine how fast your heart would be racing? A video recently going viral captures a cougar for nearly six minutes on video, on a trail in Utah.

“I thought I was done for,” Kyle Burgess posted on Instagram about his intense cougar encounter on Saturday in Slate Canyon, near Provo, Utah.

Kyle is said to be a seasoned hiker and has come across cougar cubs before while on a trail run, and even mentions how their mother was not happy to see them in past encounters.

"Seasoned hiker." Apparently the cougar thought so. Apart from not having a pistol with him, he did pretty well, honestly.

Wow, I've watched that several times. He kept his head, literally and figuratively.

He did just what she wanted ....... 'back off'. ....... Like any 'momma', she would die if needed.

It appears she did not consider him prey, as she did not attack and at a certain point it appears she decided that that was far enough and it was time to get back to the cubs. ....... Not a 'seasoned hiker' here, but as a 'seasoned brain owner' I would probably conclude that it might be wise to 'run' in some other area.
