Cougar stalks Utah hiker in horrifying video

PROVO, Utah (WLNE) – A man’s outrageously horrifying video of a cougar stalking him while he was jogging in Utah has quickly gone viral.

Kyle Burgess was in the middle of his run when he came across a mother cougar who continued to stalk and lunge at him.

The cougar followed Burgess down the trail for six minutes, continuously hissing at him and threatening to charge.

This went on for a whole six minutes before Burgess threw a rock at the mother and it ran away.

According to KSL Newsradio, Burgess said that he’d seen YouTube videos about what to do when encountering wild animals.

He said that he stayed bigger than the cougar and never turned his back to it for the six minutes.
