Angry Animal – level 3

20-10-2020 07:00

A man in Utah survived a terrifying encounter with a mountain lion after he disturbed the animal with her cubs.

The 26-year-old runner, Kyle Burgess, thought that he had stumbled across wild kittens on the trail. Suddenly, a fully grown cougar started to follow him.

Burgess recorded the six-minute incident in Slate Canyon, during which he tried to scare the cougar away by making loud noises; however, the big cat continued to follow him further and further away from her cubs. The cougar kept its distance; however, she appeared ready to pounce.

Eventually, Burgess managed to throw a rock, which caused the predator to run away.

Difficult words: stumble across (to meet someone accidentally), pounce (to suddenly jump forward to catch something such as prey which is something you can eat), predator (an animal that kills and eats other animals).
