Heart-stopping mountain lion encounter caught on video

In this July 23, 2017, photo provided by Brian McKinney, Sam Vonderheide, right, and McKinney pose for a photo on the High Sierra trail in Sequoia National Park, Calif. The two hikers walking a High Sierra trail videotaped a nerve-wracking stare-down with a wild mountain lion. The video shows the adult lion scurry down a winding trail out of sight; moments later the hikers round a turn to see the large cat peering down on them from a rocky perch feet away. Wildlife biologist Daniel Gammons said the men did the right thing by staying calm. Biologists say you should make yourself appear big by waving your arms overhead and scare off the animal, as the men did. (Brian McKinney via AP)
