    My name is Shannon Parker and I was attacked by a mountain lion June 26, 2004. I was hiking with three boys at the Johnsondale Bride/Lake Isabella, California. I know first hand what it is like to be attacked by a mountain lion, that little boy is extremely lucky as am I. Please contact me if you would like to do a story. Thank you

    The Take Away Lesson:

    When you go into the forest, woods, or any remote areas you should have proper gear. A critical gear is a suitable and well powered firearms, e.g., high powered rifles, shotguns, or souped up with hot loads handguns. Remember, when it comes to carnivour encounters, the heavier the bullets the better. What ever caliber you launch from your weapons should be the heaviest bullets that you can handle, and your pocket book can take. Just remember that heavy bullets stop nasty critters in their tracks, i.e., bear, mountain lion, mule deer, moose, including Mr. and Mrs. Bigfoot, if it comes to that.

    What would you do if you were attacked by a mountain lion and there was only one person with you and no cell service. What procedures could you do to try to keep the person alive if bit or scratched severly.

    See my summary of experiences with cougars just south of Boulder in the Coal creek Canyon area.

    Thank you wildlife officials to taking this lion out. I know it is a hard thing for you to do and noone wants an animal killed unnecessarily. Mountain lions are beautiful creatures – but they are serious predators and people need to realize how dangerous hey are – not “Bambi”. Those truly educated about mountain lions know how serious they are. Conversely, we are more and more impeding upon their habitat. Therefore I say, especially in mountain lion country, please leave your children at home. Reserve their nature hikes for areas that are not in mountain lion country. Lions will steel them out of your very hands. If your not comfortable with guns – as an earlier write recommended – AT LEAST take a good knife and pepper spray.

    I was attacked by a mountain lion, as well. It was 15 years ago and I still have nightmares about it. Feel free to contact me if you want details, as well.

    Would love to hear your story Brenda. Feel free to e-mail me telling me about it. Where did your attack occur ? Some of my family venture out into the state parks & recreation areas here in CA. They mentioned to me the signs warning of cougar country … although they didn’t think too much about it … I told them to take it seriously.
