Living With the Cougar
Your best line of defense in a cougar attack is avoiding a confrontation. To that end, we present some excerpts from Cougars, a short-film finalist at the 2003 Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler. Wit-ness the stalking (in the bar), the mauling (on the rug), and the rare escape (made in this case by a Whistler taxi driver-a common victim of cougar attacks).
