Jogger filming cougar cubs barely escapes mauling by mom

Kyle Burgess was jogging in a Utah canyon when he spotted four adorable cougar cubs. Their mom was not too happy about his photoshoot, leading to a tense six-minute standoff.

Amazingly, Burgess came away totally unharmed after he picked up a rock and hurled it at her. According to the Deseret News, a local official with Utah's Division of Wildlife Resources, Scott Root, told Burgess: "You did awesome." But, Root added, people should consider not running alone on trails.
