|Should You Encounter A Mountain Lion|
|* Do not run. Stand still, facing the lion.
* Make yourself big. Lift your hat, jacket, or walking stick above your head.
* Don't screech. Research suggests that the high pitched screams of women and children register as the sound of injured deer or rabbits to a mountain lion.
* Fight back if attacked. Tales are told of mountain lions running off after being hit with items as small as baseball caps
