Here are some tips on what to do if you come across a mountain lion:

  • Stay calm.
  • Never run.
  • Do not approach, especially one with kittens or if the mountain lion is eating.
  • If the mountain lion is acting aggressively, thrown rocks or sticks or whatever you have handy at the mountain lion.
  • Do not crouch or bend down. Try to make yourself appear larger.
  • If the animal does attack, always fight back.
