Especially this killer jogger…
A runner fought for his life after he was attacked by a mountain lion on a trail in Larimer County Monday afternoon.
The man was running on the West Ridge Trail in Horsetooth Mountain Open Space west of Fort Collins, when he says he heard something behind him. As he turned, the animal lunged at him. While fighting the mountain lion off, the runner was bit in the face & wrists. He eventually broke free & escaped the park & to the hospital.
Wildlife officials said in the course of defending himself, the runner killed the mountain lion. They did not elaborate on how the animal died. It has been taken to a health lab for a necropsy.
The mountain lion was described as a "juvenile" weighing about 80 pounds.
In addition to injuries to his face and wrists, the runner also had puncture wounds to his arms, legs & back. His injuries were reportedly serious but not life-threatening.
“The runner did everything he could to save his life. In the event of a lion attack, you need to do anything in your power to fight back just as this gentleman did,” said Mark Leslie, Colorado Parks & Wildlife Northeast Region manager.
