WOW! JUST HEARD THIS ON THE NEWS IN ARKANSAS -cool story in Paradise CALIFORNIA- Mountain lion attack foiled by a motherly bear who grabbed the mountain lion when it was on top of an 69 year old man! *LINK*

Man saved from mountain lion by bear, he says



(AP/File)


A California man says he was saved from a mountain lion by a bear.


Robert Biggs, 69, of Paradise, Calif., told the Paradise Post he was hiking Monday when he was attacked by a mountain lion.

"They usually grab hold of your head with all four paws," Biggs said. "But my backpack was up above my head and (the mountain lion) grabbed it instead."

Shortly before the encounter, Biggs said he had seen mother bear with a pair of cubswhich he thinks is what the mountain lion was after.

"It must have been stalking the little bear," Biggs said, "but it was on me in seconds."

But just as quickly, the mother bear came to his aid. he said. "The bear and the cat battled for about 15 seconds," Biggs recalled, before both ran away.

The hiker and self-described "naturist" escaped with minor injuries.

According to California's Dept. of Fish and Game, mountain lion attacks on humans are fairly rare in the state. Only 14 have been verified from 1890 to 2007, according to the department's website.
