My first instinct was to run. And then I thought NO. I MUST TAKE A PHOTO. THE WORLD MUST KNOW. As I pulled out my camera, I told myself that if it attacked me I might get seriously injured, but I probably wouldn’t die.

And now I have this photo. Totally worth it.

On an unrelated note, here is a list of fatal cougar attacks in North America.
