    Yep, there are countless examples of mountain lions attacking adult humans.

    Just look up the stats.

    It's about as common as an adult being attacked by a beaver, porcupine or fox.

    Definitely a high-probability scenario.

    Also, don't forget your meteor-proof umbrella when you go into the bush. Bush-meteors are absolutely the worst.

    This topic is of interest to me.





    Interesting note about the Puma concolor

    it holds the Guinness record for the animal with the highest number of names.
    It has over 40 names in English alone

    Sambo would be even more useless against a porcupine :( I hope I don't get attacked by one.

    My stepmom saw a mountain lion on campus at Grossmont College a few years ago.

    Was it a cougar stand off? Or more like a cougar vs. an old alley cat?

    Wow that is crazy, but I there is a lot of open wilderness right off of that campus.

    On the other hand I find it interesting to think that the Los Penasquitos Canyon preserve would have enough game in it to attract a mountain lion. It is a preserve but it is very small and I have seen so few deer. In particular in that area of Mira Mesa that is in between Sequence Drive and Sorrento Valley road, its pretty barron.

    The area near Grossmont College isn't connected to Penasquitos canyon but its next to the uninterrupted open space of Cowles Mountain, Mission Trails, Sycamore Canyon Open Space and all the military land from Mission Trails till Miramar. Its actually a pretty huge area, but I've never seen a mountain lion out there. I've hiked Sycamore Canyon all day without ever coming to the end of it.

    It is a preserve but it is very small and I have seen so few deer. In particular in that area of Mira Mesa that is in between Sequence Drive and Sorrento Valley road, its pretty barron.
    Myself and others have seen herds of deer there. Its a common area for ticks, which tend to accompany deer. I think you may be thinking of Miramar college though? Grossmont is in El Cajon.
