Some aspects of nature are so mesmerizing that even a daily occurrence captured on video can go viral.
A video published by FOX31 and captured by an Evergreen couple shows a mountain lion stalking a bull elk. As an elk strolls through a field just beyond a fence and a swing set, a lion follows close behind.
Watch the video below:
The outcome of the moment remains unknown.
If you happen to spot a mountain lion while in nature, don't run or squat down. Stay calm, holding your ground or slowly backing away while facing the lion.
If the mountain approaches you or seems aggressive, try to appear large. Wave your arms and speak loudly. Try to throw objects in the direction of the animal and if it attacks you, fight back.
