You don't need to outrun the mountain lion. You need to outrun your friend.

wickedragon: Mountain Lions are what, like 50-60 kg?
Pft, bring it. Its like fighting a ferocious twelve year old with tiny knives. It will hurt me, it might fark me up, but I'm a bigger predator and I will tell it with fists, teeth and an axe.

Personally, I prefer rape.  Mountain lions hate being raped.  It keeps them away.
Try it next time.

/learned that from an old Catholic priest

Chihuahua mix outside at 2 AM?? Even after discovering a mountain lion had taken their neighbor's boxer at 3 AM on a previous night?

Murderous, negligent shiat for brain farks.

Time for their names to be placed on an animal abuse list (like Deblasio is developing in NY).

~~The California Department of Fish and Game advises residents to take the following precautions:
Do not feed deer; it is illegal in California and it will attract mountain lions,
Trim brush to reduce hiding places for mountain lions,
Don't allow pets outside when mountain lions are most active, at dawn, at dusk and at night,
Bring pet food inside to avoid attracting raccoons, opossums and other potential mountain lion prey,
Do not leave small children or pets outside unattended,
Install motion-sensitive lighting around the house,
Do not hike, bike, or jog alone.
Avoid hiking or jogging when mountain lions are most active,
Do not approach a mountain lion,
If you encounter a mountain lion, do not run; instead, face the animal, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms; throw rocks or other objects. Pick up small children,
If attacked, fight back,
If a mountain lion attacks a person, immediately call 911.

This is the response for the people asking for some assistance. Really WOW. Here is better advise:

Buy a gun. Use said gun on the mountain lion......pray you don't just piss it off.

//seriously if attacked, fight back!! WTF????
///Also if you see the mountain lion before you get your guts ripped out you are doing better than most prey.

Pick up small children? Really?
Are people stupid enough to need advice like this?

YES !!

This is a valid point, as many outdoor articles instruct you to play dead when attacked by some animals. When a mountain lion attacks, the most usual method is to go for the throat and clamp. Playing dead is not an option.
