You will learn in this article how to survive a lion attack, advice, and information.

All About Lions

How to Survive a Lion Attack

All felines are equipped for causing terrible injuries for people, with even the little home animals having sharp claws and teeth. What more danger can big cats such as lions, tigers, and panthers with such power can do to humans.

The lion is a well-muscled cat with an extended frame, huge head, and brief legs. Size and look range significantly among the sexes. In a few lions, the mane and fringe are very darkish, nearly black, giving the cat an imposing look. Manes make adult males appear large and can serve to intimidate competitors or galvanize potential mates. The female, or lioness, is smaller, the coat is brief and varies in shade from buff yellow, orange-brown, or silvery grey to darkish brown, with a tuft at the tail tip this is typically darker than the relaxation of the coat.

Top Cats: the 2 species which can be not unusual place sufficient and massive sufficient to be risky to man (or extra particularly children) are the African Lion and the North American Mountain Lion, additionally called the Cougar.

African Lions – Since ancient times, African lions have been widely used as a symbol of courage and strength. These iconic animals have an effective physique-in the cat family, they are second only to tigers-and a roar that can be heard from five miles away. The fur of a human-lion is yellow gold, and the juvenile has several spots of light that disappear with age. Normally, only male lions lean and boast gorgeous fringes with long hair that surrounds their heads.

Mountain Lions/Cougars - A cougar, also known as a mountain lion or cougar, has brown or tan fur and a white or cream-colored chin, lower, and inner legs. The ears are rounded and the back of the ears is solid black to dark gray. The tail is long (up to half of the total length), thick, and the tip is black. Cougars less than a year old have dark brown spots.

Tigers – The tiger, easily identified by its dark striped orange-red fur, is the largest wild cat in the world. The tail length of a large cat is 3 feet. On average, a large cat weighs 450 pounds, about the same as eight 10-year-old children. It is 1 meter high, has 4 inches of teeth, and has the same claw length as a house key.

Avoiding Mountain Lions

If you do encounter a mountain lion, taking these precautions may help you avoid a confrontation.

Never go out alone. Groups of two or more are less likely to be attacked. If an attack does occur, there is a much greater chance of defense.

Keep children near adults. When walking with an adult, do not allow small children to hike alone or out of sight. The child's small size, fast and often unpredictable movements, high-pitched voice, and running instinct can attract lions. If a lion is witnessed, have all children walk between or behind adults.

Please be careful about breeding hunting dogs and livestock. Dogs can act as "bait" to attract these lions.

Do not approach a mountain lion intentionally. Avoid making the animal feel cornered, trapped, or harassed. Never ever run in the presence of a lion as this will only trigger their natural instinct to chase you. Just stand still, facing toward the cat and make sure to have an eye contact.

If You Meet A Cougar

If you see a cougar, don't run. Don't surprise the cougar. Make noise to let the cougar notice your presence. Cougars are unlikely to attack a person (and therefore should not escape) unless the person feels trapped, provoked, or looks like prey. If you are in a group, gather everyone and move as a group.

Respect the cougar`s space, and do not approach the animal. If the cougar sees you, stand your ground; look as large as possible by standing up straight putting your arms up in the air, and slowly back away. If possible, go inside your house or get into your car. If a cougar attacks you, always try to fight. Throw rocks, use sticks. Don't play dead.

  • Gaze at their eyes and do not look away.
  • Screams can confuse them and affect their concentration.
  • Cats like small targets should not bend, crouch, or crawl.
  • Do not run. This is a kind of attack trigger that can run much faster than humans. ..
  • If there is a warning growl from a mountain lion, shout and generally look as big as possible with your arms raised high. Throw sticks and rocks and shout abuse. They hate that.

What Would You Do If They Attack

You can take the gamble and fight back. Usually, they disguise and pounce or creep up on their victims, with the purpose of biting the jugular and breaking the spine. Children are at more risk. Punch and take hold of his or her snouts and eyes, or testicles if it`s a male. Shout and scream to confuse the critter, similarly to summoning help.

Conclusion

Being attacked by a lion is a horrifying concept, but keep in mind that animals are trying to survive. It is a predator, but it needs protection and respect to exist on the modern planet.
