Mountain Lions: If ... the lion does not run, stay calm, stand tall, do not run; talk to the lion in a confident manner, pick up any small children off the ground to lessen any chance of rapid movement that might provoke an attack from the lion. Try to keep your dog under control so as not to antagonize the lion. If attacked, fight back with everything and anything: sticks, stones, etc. It's a good idea to carry a bottle of pepper spray with you on hikes or around your property at night to fend off any and all such dangerous encounters....

If you see a mountain lion, don't worry – you won't see the one that kills you.
