A cougar appeared to be stalking two men as they rode their bikes over the weekend in the Cascade Mountains near Seattle. Then suddenly the animal charged, the survivor of the fatal cougar attack told authorities.
The survivor said he hit the cougar in the head with his mountain bike, and the animal ran into the woods. But as the men were catching their breath and getting back on the bicycles, the animal returned and fastened its mouth on the man's head, crunching down, shaking him side to side like prey, Kings County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Ryan Abbott said Sunday, recalling the survivor's account.
