A terrifying video shows a man walking a trail being followed by a puma for almost six minutes in Utah, USA.
The animal is known as a “mountain lion” in English.
“I thought it was over,” wrote Kyle Burgess in an Instagram post about his Saturday meeting in Slate Canyon.
The seasoned connoisseur of nature said that he found puma cubs, also known as suçuarana, while running on a trail and “his mother was not happy to see me”.
In the swearing footage, Burgess is heard screaming and roaring in an effort to make the big cat retreat. The man retreats along the trail as the cougar chases him, charging at him several times with his teeth and claws showing.
“Go away! Go get your babies, ”Burgess is heard screaming at one point.
After six minutes of chasing, the animal finally runs back to the direction it came from.
In an interview with NBC News, Burgess said, ” I definitely thought I was going to hurt myself .”
“My adrenaline was pumping up a lot,” he said.
