Encounter With Cougar Climbing on the Roadside

Occurred on July 26, 2020 / North Vancouver Island, Canada

Info from Licensor: "My boyfriend, Caleb, and I had just finished a hiking and climbing trip to the top of Big Interior Mountain and Mount Septimus in Strathcona Park, Vancouver Island. We had just gotten in the vehicle and were heading home after a long and arduous trip filled with sweat, tears, and a whole lot of mosquitos. Sunday was a particularly hot day, with no clouds in the sky and not a lick of wind. It was about 8:30 at night and the sun was finally below the horizon, we came around the corner on the highway to encounter this cougar coming back from having a drink out of Buttle Lake. It got spooked and ran. We were just extremely lucky to be in the right spot at the right time."
