Video: Jogger Stops Mountain Lion Attack with Bear Spray

This jogger proved bear spray isn’t just for bears.
Donny Stone, an Alberta resident, was on a run in 2015 when he encountered two cougars on the trail. The excitement of spotting his first mountain lions quickly turned to fear as the big cats approached from behind.
“I was expecting quite honestly for them to stay in the bush and watch me go by,” Stone told CTV News. “Had I not had that bear spray out with the safety off and ready to fire with my finger on the trigger, I’m pretty confident that the cougar would have got me.”
