    It was within rock throwing distance, so you get an idea of how fast that cat could've covered that ground if it felt inclined to.

    Never been scared of an animal.
    People,however, are a different matter.

    I was wilderness camping in the Judean desert once, right next to a big Hyrax colony.
    At night a leopard decided it was time for a Hyrax snack.
    I've never heard such a racket in my life. Whole colony was screaming.

    Didn't feel threatened, though. I'm not a Hyrax.

    Seen lots of bear close up, never had a problem with the black and brown varieties..
    The white ones we have in the " north part" of Denmark does see man as prey.
    Carrying a gun is a good thing, when hiking around those.

    If you want a bear to be scared of, Butch. Polar bear is your choice.

    For the gun interested people; the gun of choice up there is the Mauser K 98.
    Supposed to handle the extreme cold better than any other and that 8 mm bullet is plenty big enough for polar bear.

    I think the statistic for being eaten by a bear is on par with being hit by a meteor.
    Do you carry a meteor shelter with you whenever you go outside?

    Yea, I'm not real worried about those... I'm just badass that way.

    I think that's an unfair analogy... There is nothing you can do to increase the odds of getting smoked by a meteor, but throwing rocks at an animal like that definitely bumps your odds. Same with lightning, the statistics are really small, but if you go golfing or work during storms you greatly increase the odds.
