Post Man Says He Used Chainsaw to Fight Starving Mountain Lion

Quote:
CODY, Wyoming — A Colorado man used a chain saw to fight off a mountain lion that attacked him during a camping trip with his wife and two toddlers in northwestern Wyoming.

The adult male lion, described as emaciated and showing other signs of starvation, was later killed by wildlife officials after it attacked a dog brought in to track it.

Dustin Britton, a 32-year-old mechanic and ex-Marine from Windsor, Colo., said he was alone cutting firewood about 100 feet from his campsite in the Shoshone National Forest when he saw the 100-pound lion staring at him from some bushes.

The 6-foot, 170-pound Britton said he raised his 18-inch chain saw and met the lion head-on as it pounced — a collision he described as feeling like a grown man running directly into him.

"It batted me three or four times with its front paws, and as quick as I hit it with that saw, it just turned away," he said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

Wildlife officials said Sunday evening's attack about 27 miles west of Cody was highly unusual because mountain lions are reclusive by nature. Only eight cases of mountain lions acting aggressively toward humans have been documented in Wyoming over the last decade.

This country's screwed up...

A man fends off a mountain lion with a chainsaw and is considered brave, but if he does the same thing to a Jehovah's Witness, he'd get in trouble...

Give me a sharpened, running chainsaw and I'll go toe to toe with just about any land animal on Earth. I grew up running chainsaw and I've seen what it can do to human flash too many times. I've got one scar about 3" long on the side of my hand from ONE tooth of a saw grazing me. The up-close destructive ability of a chainsaw is pretty much unstoppable.
