At 4:40, Mr. Bartsch—more in wonderment than fear—says, “Fifteen meters away from me. Look at him! Just eyein’ me up like I’m a blacktail deer.” But the guy is not entirely unarmed. He’s found a shed antler. Unfortunately, blacktails aren’t known for their large antlers. So if the cat charges, it may not be the best deterrent. At 4:46, Mr. Bartsch decides he’s had enough. “I think it’s time to get rid of him,” he says. “Shhhhht,” he hisses. “Go on, get outta here. Shhhhht.” He doesn’t even say it particularly loudly. But the cougar turns and starts to walk away. “He’s not exactly running away, is he?” says Bartsch. “He’s right there.” But it’s pretty clear the animal isn’t going to attack. The video ends.
