Video: Colorado Man Recounts Tale of Mountain Lion Attack

By now, I’m sure most of you have heard the story about Travis Kauffman. He’s the Colorado man who was attacked by a mountain lion while out for a trail run. The big cat pounced on him and the attack soon turned into a life or death situation, with Kauffman surviving by choking the lion to death. In this video, he recounts that story for the first time, sharing what it was like to fight for his life against a wild animal. There is a warning at the start of the video, but it is important to stress it here as well. There is some graphic content in the clip that may be unsettling for some viewers. It is a riveting tale nonetheless.
