Near Mountain Lion Encounter

This entry was posted in Fun Stuff on by .

I was just forwarded this short Youtube video from the Lake Wilson MTB race I did a couple days ago.  I guess a mountain lion was hanging out by the trail and when Kalan went by, he scared it before I got there.  The video shows it running away through the grass.  It also shows how badly I was riding, dabbing, one of lots of times, during the race.  I remember that spot.  A wind gust came, blew me a little sideways and my wheel slipped.  It is weird how the mind works.  It was super windy.   Anyway, here it is.

    Yup, pretty sure by the gait it was a coyote, also can just see a bushy tail at one point.

    Gait looked like a coyote. I doubt a bike rider would scare a Mountain lion enough to run like that. Maybe dogs could get them to run, but the ones I have seen in the wild were more like bears and pretty much held their ground to a human. Big cats worry me on the mtb. cause they will see you way before you see them.

    While I would believe a mountain lion in that part of Kansas, the gait and bushy tail looks like a coyote.

    I nearly hit a big-ass mountain lion driving through Stull once. Pretty amazing.

    I live in the boonies in the Flint Hills. We see coyotes several times/week on our property (listen to them every single night). That is most definitely a coyote.
