Chased by a Cougar

Under most circumstances, a mountain lion will avoid humans. But they are dangerous cats, and will attack if they are frightened or hungry. Kyle Burgess was running a mountain trail in Utah and saw some cats. He thought they were bobcats, but they were cougar kittens, and their mother was not happy about it. From this rather long sequence -six minutes!- we can gather that she was trying to get rid of him more than wanting to kill him. Kyle had the presence of mind to keep facing the cat, because turning his back could have been deadly. He finally threw a rock, and the cat decided it had chased him far enough. -via Digg

Very young cat. Barely old enough to have given birth. Looks underfed as well. I understand why she is grumpy.
As a warning, anytime you see any wild cat, go back the way you came. Even a bobcat can kill you.
