It’s spring time here in the Northern Hemisphere, and that means the animals have moved from their winter quarters and are on the attack. The War on Animals is here again.
In Connecticut, it’s off to an early start. A bunch of hawks are terrorizing the good people of Fairfield. Local police have warned residents to be careful after several residents have reported hawks swooping down and attacking their heads. State and federal officials have even gotten involved. Hoping to relocate the offending hawks.
You would think they would learn that there’s only one way to deal with these creatures.
When you go out into the forest, you know the enemy is watching. They are everywhere. From the birds reporting on your position to the mosquitoes harassing you so you can’t make a clear decision. However, we all know the risks of running into a wild animal, you know, the big kind.
That’s exactly what happened to a man from British Columbia (which is neither British, nor Colombian) last week. The 21-year old man was trying to hitchhike when he ran into a cougar, which he quickly decided did not want to give him a lift. The cougar watched him from a perch above and followed him as he walked. He called his girlfriend, who called police, as the cougar got closer. Finally, the man broke into a run and the cougar gave chase.
The ferocious cougar pounced on the man in an instant. It didn’t look good for our hero, but he grabbed a rock and bashed the cougar over the head until it ran off. Get this: the man was unhurt.
