80 Year Old Woman Stops Mountain Lion with Gun

Interesting stuff, this.

I belong to a Search and Rescue unit in a state where there are mountain lions, and we recently held a mock search (for training purposes). Just before our team was deployed, we heard on the radio from a person who was already deployed, that she was being stalked by a mountain lion. Soon after, she reported that she was being stalked by two of them, one of which came within 30 yards of her. She was pretty experienced in the ways of the out of doors, but to say that her voice was filled with fear and that we were chilled would be an understatement.

We got her back without incident. I myself have a CCW and was armed with a puny .380 PPK. But from now on, I'm going to carry a much more capable gun -- as in a .357 Magnum.

Dear Anonymous:

Thanks very much for the post. I think that the woman in the post was pretty brave to go after the Mountain Lion with a 22.
