The family in this video sets a house outside their house each night, and they typically end up trapping small foxes inside it. That’s why they were stunned one morning to look in their trap and see a fully grown mountain lion staring back at them…
Via American Overlook:
The danger really ramped up a few days ago, when they checked the trap and found a fully grown mountain lion staring out at them with ferocious eyes. When the camera panned over the lion, my heart stopped for a second – I can’t imagine what it was like to see this in real life!
Obviously the dangerous animal was a bit angry because of the whole being trapped alive thing, and so releasing it became a whole other problem in itself. Mountain lions are incredibly dangerous, and if done the wrong way Justin could have really suffered some serious damage.
His wife heads to the car to tape the release, staying as far away as she could. I would be so worried if my significant other had to face a mountain lion right in front of me.. I can’t imagine how she was feeling.
After he opens the cage, he looks up at the camera apprehensively. “You got a good shot in there?” he asks his wife, wanting to make sure she captured this awesome moment. The swift feline quickly sprints out of the cage, unharmed. Thankfully no one got hurt!
Hopefully Justin learned his lesson about trapping animals – it doesn’t really lead to anything other than dangerous situations and extra stress.
