Good ol' "pe no pescoco" :). In a longer interview he says that was worried that the mother cougar would show up. I still consider it likely that the lion was young and inexperienced at killing. Maybe its mom had died.

That's what I am thinking too. Seems like a more mature mountain lion would have retreated.

Interesting that the man moved there to get taste of nature...

Mountain lion killed by Colorado trail runner was a kitten, necropsy report says
FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The final necropsy report of the mountain lion killed by Colorado trail runner Travis Kauffman estimates the age of the lion at three to four months.

The necropsy performed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife veterinarians in Fort Collins identified the lion as a "kitten'' with a weight of 24 pounds. However, the animal was heavily scavenged and officials estimated the animal's live weight was 35 to 40 pounds. The report listed the animal in "fair condition'' with no diseases noted.
