Utah Hiker Evades Death After Being Stalked By A Wild Mother Cougar
Utah hiker escape death even though he came within a cougar’s whisker of death …
Kyle Burgess is the guy whose voice you heard during that terrifying wild encounter in Utah, and he reveals that the whole ordeal was actually his fault … although unintentionally.
Kyle says he had stumbled upon what he thought was an adult bobcat during the hike on Slate Canyon Trail near Provo, and that’s why he pulled out his phone to record.
But he quickly and scarily learned, it was a cougar cub … and Kyle says he totally gets why the adult was protecting its young.
“It was doing what it’s supposed to do” … that’s how he sees it, and that’s why he doesn’t want anyone — wildlife officials or others — harming the animal.
The Utah Hiker says he’s not scared to return to the scene of near to death encounter.
