Mountain Lions have been spotted in Northern Michigan with more frequency in the last few years. I know a number of people who have had first hand encounters with these fierce beasts.
It is important that you know what you should do when encountering a Michigan mountain lion or other dangerous big cat.
- Don't Run!
- Stare It Down - crush it with the force of your will!
- Make horrible screeching noises at it. It may think you are a bigfoot, the natural enemy of the mountain lion, and leave you alone.
- Use Projectile Weapons - A well aimed magic missile or a shotgun work well.
- If Attacked Fight Back - Unleash torrents of curses and knife thrusts! Bite it! Punch its naughty bits!
