Cougar safety in Last Chance Canyon
Before beginning our trek into Last Chance Canyon, the park sign had a sign about what to do if you see a cougar on the trail:
1)Pick up your children and calm them down.
2)Do not run (cougars will catch you)
3)Use your jacket and your arms to make yourself look bigger.
4)If the cougar comes closer, throw rocks.
5)If it attacks - fight back!
Yikes! Margaret was in the back of the group, but she planned to give the cougars a whap with her walking stick if they try to pick her off.
