Maureen Lee told CBC News she was turning away to pick a berry when she thought she saw another dog approaching out of the corner of her eye, but it was the cougar coming to attack her daughter, Maya. “All of a sudden it just flew on her, rolled her a couple of times and grabbed her under its belly on the ground like in the fetal position,” Lee recalled. “She [Maya] was on her back and he had his paws in her head, and I just knew I had to react quick, so I just jumped in there and wedged myself between the cougar and her on the ground, and I just got up and threw it off my back and grabbed her and booked it,” she said. The toddler suffered puncture wounds to her left arm and head, but was recovering well, her mother said.
Maybe that cougar had seen one of those Discovery Channel documentaries where something messes with the cub in front of the mother grizzly bear and it doesn’t turn out well for the intruder. Object lesson: Don’t F@#! with mama.
