Bear rescues man from cougar during hike from hell3/29/2012
69-year-old Robert Biggs says he was rescued from an attacking mountain lion by a bear during a recent hike in Northern California. The fun started when Biggs paused to observe a mother bear with her new cub, and a mountain lion suddenly sprang on him, sinking four claws into his backpack and part of his arm. As Biggs tried to subdue the mountain lion with his rock pick, the mother bear jumped into the fray, tearing at the lion until it ran off. Biggs speculates he had interrupted the mountain lion as it hunted the baby cub, allowing him to walk away from the scene despite being the weakest in the pile up and basically the equivalent of a Lunchable for either beast.
