That will make you run faster! A man in Colorado was jogging on teh Horsetooth Mountain trail in Colorado when he was attacked by a mountain lion! The 80lb animal bit his face and wrist, but he was able to break free. He then suffocated the mountain lion WITH HIS BARE HANDS in self defense. A necropsy confirmed, and supported the man’s claim that he killed it by suffocating it.
We can also confirm the lion in this case was less than a year old, and we may be able to determine age a bit more tightly in the final reports. The cat also tested negative for rabies, which is very welcome news.

The jogger was in the hospital for his injuries, but has since been released.
