A YouTube channel called Nature Footage has put out some incredible content over the years, showing off all sides of wild animals, from the beautiful to the brutal, like this clip of a grizzly tumbling down a hill while chasing an elk.
But the video that’s my favorite shows, in HD, the beauty, speed, and power of a mature mountain lion.
I’d love to know how they got this shot, because it looks like the cat was sprinting directly at the camera. Hopefully it was being controlled from a safe distance away, because wow that is not something you want coming at you.
Even though the ground is covered in a few inches of snow, the cat is hardly bothered, sprinting forward with true determination towards whatever its target happened to be.
If you’re out in the woods, keep your head on a swivel.
You never know if one of these killers is lurking just out of sight.
