Spotting wild animals in their natural habitat can be one of the coolest experiences during a hike. Assuming you’re at a safe distance and don’t attempt to do anything dumb, encounters with wild animals shouldn’t pose too much of a threat.

We’d recommend taking this interaction and using it as an example of exactly what not to do.

After spotting a cougar ahead of them on the trail, two guys decide to follow after it when it walks away. This would’ve been a great time to turn around and leave, but they didn’t take the opportunity.

We’ll let you see what happens next. It’s definitely something that would’ve had us scared out of our minds and unsure of any future hikes!
