    Mother saves son from cougar - Winnipeg Free Press


    When Mark Impey heard his wife scream, he figured she encountered wasps. But he turned around to witness the cougar, its claws in Simon's head, dragging his son into the bush.

    He raced toward his son but by the time he arrived, his wife had rushed the animal, attacking it with an metal water bottle with all her fury.

    Mark Impey said Saturday that he thinks she hammered the cougar about 15 times in rapid sucession when it let Simon go.

    "She saved Simon's life," Impey said. "If she was farther away, it would have been a different story."



    never under estimate the power of a mother!

    Isn't that the truth? I can see myself doing the same thing she did.

    I think that cougar knew, it better get the hell out of there.
    Cougars kill adult around here and it could have killed this lady and the boy but I think it knew it picked the wrong boy to mess with.:)

    seems we may have cougars now...a mare was attacked....but we do already have bears....would be odd for a black bear to attack a mare.
