Elk NetworkMan Stalked by Mountain Lion in Colorado

General | October 27, 2020

A man who went in the woods of southwest Colorado in search of hunting photo ended up getting hunted by a mountain lion. Steve Shively went to check on images from his trail camera when he noticed the animal stalking him.

“Suddenly, I spotted this motionless mountain lion crouched down behind a rock ready to pounce on me,” Shively told KCNC-TV. “He had silently stalked to within 20 yards through the dry crunchy fall leaves on the ground.”

After he captured the incident on video, it eventually slowly walked away.

It happened near Bayfield, approximately 250 miles south and west of Pueblo.
