I mean, it’s one thing to have a predator size you up in the woods, that’s their territory. But, it almost seems a little disrespectful to have one trying to come right into your house.
An apex predator being so aggressive that it comes to your house and is sizing you up through the window. I would have been doing everything I could to make that animal feel like it is not welcomed back, that’s for sure.
Mountain lions are the scariest cat to roam North America. With ongoing urban sprawl and people building camps and cottages everywhere, there’s bound to be an increase in sightings. Usually, these things don’t bother people to much, but when they do it is frightening to say the least.
The cougar is seen walking up to a door of a cabin in Hot Springs Cove, British Columbia, where this couple was staying in.
They say you can see by the look in their eyes what their intentions are and that was definitely the case here. This cat has the eyes of a killer…
As the cougar looks at the people and sizes up the door, you can’t help but think it could tear through it with one swipe.
The cat starts to walk around the place looking for an easy way in. Eventually it just stops and stares at the man who doesn’t break eye contact.
This is a wild encounter, but be sure to make lots of noise if you’re ever in a similar situation. These things don’t like any kind of threats.
Here’s a word from the man behind the camera:
“My wife and I were on our anniversary vacation in Hot Springs Cove, located 1 hour and a half off of the North West coast from Tofino, British Columbia, Canada.
After waking up in the morning, we made our way from the smaller guest cabin to the larger main cabin. We sat for coffee/tea, and after a few minutes, we were visited by a cougar at the front porch. It lingered at the edge of the deck for a minute, looking intensely before pouncing onto the deck towards us.
It stopped at the glass doors where it sniffed and looked for a way in. Not having any weapons in the cabin, we were trapped and unsure of how to defend ourselves if the cougar found a way inside.
After it walked around to the side of the house, I proceeded to stare at it intently. Like a stare-off, not aggressively, just deeply. We held that for a minute or so until I broke the gaze.
After which, it walked off behind the cabin, and we waited around for an hour before leaving and getting picked up in a boat and taken safely back to The InnChanter.”
