The Chainlink

A sad run in with nature. As if there isn't enough things to worry about out there.

Please, anyone smarter than me want to add the link to the story. Thanks, Ken

No worries - added to your original message. Saw this earlier today. So awful.

A sad story.  Too bad the two guys didn't stick together.  I wouldn't be surprised if the cougar was either sick or starving.  Terrible all around.  

When I read elsewhere that the cougar weighed 100 pounds, I knew the reason for the attack.  It was in fact starving.  Check out this article:

The cougar was emaciated.  That's why it attacked, out of desperation.  I feel sorry for the cyclists, but I feel sorry for that cougar, too.
