A man was attacked by a mountain lion in Utah while hunting last week. As he started walking to begin his elk hunt, he heard a growl. In the treeline, 10′ away, a mountain lion was ready to pounce and attack.
Cody Hardman says he used one arrow to try and shoot it in self defense, but time was short and he missed. The mountain lion jumped and landed on Hardman’s chest knocking him to the ground. However, the mountain lion did not bite.
Hardman was finally relieved when the mountain lion ran away and only leaving him with a puncture in the leg. He immediately climbed a tree and called authorities for help.
The attack happened around 6:45 am in Summit County, Utah.
