Petting Mountain Lion Cubs: Cute in Theory, Bad Idea in Reality
Mountain Lion cubs are adorable. But beware when you pet them, their mother might lash out as one did today when a hiker on the Borrego Trail in Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park (Orange County) did just that. Luckily, today's "attack," as KNX1070 is calling it, was only a scratch. We would call it self defense as the human was the one who approached the cubs, even if with harmless intentions. The park is currently closed as Park rangers, sheriff's deputies and the Department of Fish and Game search the area.
