My wife and son were stalked by a cougar on VI scary stuff as up there they attack full grown humans. They went for a short walk down a trail in light sprinkling rain about 5 minutes ahead of me, I came upon the cougar tracks leaving heavy brush and right on top of theirs, I gave a shout out and sped up they were on their way back we met up and looked over the tracks you could see the cat over the top of theirs and she said there were no tracks on the way out. She also said she got a real creepy feeling so she picked up a stick. Now when we hike we all go two or three at a time close together. Also had a weird event near Cuyamaca Mtn in San Diego known for cats. Be careful for sure they are getting more aggressive, makes me wonder about some of these hunters that just disappear in the backcountry.This is an informational and useful thread. DFG_Bear thanks for your contributions.
Recently my wife tivo'd a show about Mt Lion attacks. It basically reported about Vancouver Island, in British Columbia. I don't recall the exact %, but it was large like 80% or 90%, of all known Cougar attacks in North America occurred on VI.
