From KSL 5 News:

_Just out of nowhere, I saw this mountain lion come charging at me,” [trail runner Steve] Newman said. . . .

_He screamed at the top of his lungs, grabbed a tree branch, beat it on the ground and walked backwards. . . .

_”I’m embarrassed to say this, but I was showing my teeth,” Newman said. . . .

“I was definitely saying a prayer in my head and really thinking that I was going to die and not going to see my wife and my three girls again,” Newman said.
