Mountain lions, otherwise known as cougars, are big cats that range from the Canadian Yukon to the southern Andes of South America. Cougars have the largest range of any big land mammal that lives in the Western Hemisphere. For this reason, a lot more people and domestic animals come into contact with them.

Like most cats, cougars are nocturnal loners who have also been spotted during the daytime - especially when they live near humans and their schedules get disrupted for a variety of reasons. They are shy, and tend to avoid us.

While there have been fatal attacks on humans, cougar attacks are very rare because they tend to be more reserved than outwardly aggressive. However, this doesn't mean you should try to give one a hug because they can and will kill you. The biggest victims to fall prey to cougars are domestic animals, cats and dogs when they go outside.

A man clearly living in a cougar environment, caught some footage of his two dogs - who both look like shepherd mixes - barking at a cougar lion that had encroached on their territory, aka their backyard. They're lucky there is two of them and that they're big dogs, otherwise their owner would have been down two canines.
