    Mountain Lion attacks two Mountain Bikers and kills one.

    Tragic:

    My heart goes out to the family and friends.

    Edit: This link has a video explains the attack. The explanation starts at 2:10 of the video.

    1 dead, 1 injured after mountain lion attack on mountain bikers near North Bend | KOMO


    The man who was killed fled into the woods and the cat chased him down. The one thing they always say is donít run from mountain lions. Always stand your ground and fight back. Holding your bike as a shield between the cat and yourself. Obviously not fool proof but a better chance at survival than running which triggers a cats predatory response.

    Wow. He ran from the lion? Never ever do that. Definitely my heart goes out to the friends and family

    Also, the attack occurred in the late morning. The cats are usually nocturnal. Wonder if this one has an issue with food supply or territory.

    Itíll be interesting to hear what happened from the survivor.

    Go to the second link in my original post and watch the video. A ranger telling the description of both attacks straight from the survivors words.
