This father was trying to teach his son how to trap animals, but then something very unexpected happened.
The family checks their trap every morning, and they usually find small, harmless animals like foxes inside it. They don’t kill the animals, they just play with them for a little bit before setting them free.
However, on this particular day when the father looked at the trap, he was stunned to find a mountain lion staring back at him. The fully-grown mountain lion was clearly enraged that he had been trapped, so if the father released him the wrong way, the situation easily could have turned deadly.
Watch as the man’s wife comes out to film the release, and it’s just as dramatic as you think it will be. We’re just thankful nobody got hurt!
