Here is my standoff with a mountain lion that happened last summer in Glacier National Park.
I did see the abscess when filming it and the first thing I did when I got out of the woods was report it to some rangers. I showed them the video, the abscess, and told them the location where it happened.
Fortunately, it was in a place that was easy enough to remember and the park rangers were on top of it. 🙂
I was carrying bear spray.
