At first, this may appear as animal cruelty, until realizing it is self-defense. Although this is a fox, we do not recommend you try chucking a mountain lion this way.

These two did not know each other. It was not a case of frolicking turned ugly. He's a truck driver who was innocently returning to his vehicle when bitten on the leg. He immediately took action. The likely rabid fox was thrown so far it bought the man enough time to be on his way.

Should you actually see a mountain lion in the wild, experts recommend you make yourself look as big as you can. If possible, grab a nearby stick and try to convince the big cat to leave. Trust your self-defense instincts and do not play dead.
