It’s not every day that a tiny dog meets a mountain lion. But when it happens, the encounter can be quite interesting, albeit rather scary.
A tiny pooch named Dash has an unexpected meeting with a mountain lion at his home. Instead of chickening out, the brave pooch held his ground and had an intense staredown with the bigger creature.
Here’s Dash’s story that may make your heart race.
There’s a puma at Dash’s home
In a video recorded by Sarah Bole, Dash’s owner, you could see a big mountain lion prowling the patio. You could hear Sarah’s scared voice as she filmed the puma.
Thankfully, there was a glass door separating the patio and the kitchen where Sarah and Dash were located. Meanwhile, Dash stayed unafraid. While Sarah was telling him to get away from the glass door, the dog simply ignored his owner’s commands. He even wagged his tail while looking at the mountain lion.
The mountain lion, on the other hand, stood rooted to the spot. It looked at Dash intently as a retaliation to the dog’s strong gaze; it even approached the glass door until it came face to face with the dog. The mountain lion tried to paw at Dash but couldn’t do it since there was a barrier separating them.
The clip ended with the mountain lion running away. Dash barked at the big cat as it escaped.
The netizens are concerned
The clip has been picked up by a social news agency Storyful Rights Management. On its YouTube page, the video has more than 300K views.
The netizens were concerned for Dash and Sarah. One said that the mountain lion would certainly be back; he even urged Sarah to watch her and Dash’s backs. On the other hand, one advised Sarah to never ever leave her dog outside unattended since that mountain lion already had an idea that there was a potential prey at Sarah’s home.
