This is one of my favorite campground signs. For all the wrong reasons.
“To most visitors, glimpsing a cougar in the wild is thrilling”
“Attacks on humans are rare, but can occur”
“Though few people will ever see a cougar, if you do see one, the following suggestions can increase your chances of a safe encounter”
“If a cougar is aggressive: don’t turn you back, or take your eyes off it”
“Don’t run. It may trigger an attack instinct”
“Fight back aggressively”
This concludes today’s cougar safety PSA.
