Going for a walk in the out west wilderness?

You better carry a gun.

There are still wild animals out there and some of them want to eat you.

Most of those animals actually don't want to eat you. They are just afraid and want to be left alone. They will attack if they think they have nowhere to run.

But then there are cases like this.

You can watch the entire encounter in the video below.

The video that I found does not say where this man was.

But we can see that he was out in some mountain area, alone, and had a gun.

Good thing he did. This big cat seems to think that it has easy prey. It's stalking the man.

Based on the heavy breathing we hear it can be said that this guy is nervous. I'll just say nervous but I bet it's a lot worse than that. How fast do you think his heart is pounding?

He takes a couple of shots to scare the cat off. If worked. If it had not worked we would probably not be seeing this video right now.

This is not the first time we have shown you a story like this.

Here is another from YouTube where a man is backing off down a path as he is being stalked.

In this case, the potential victim had no choice but to kill the cat.

You can tell he did not want to. He had to. It was him or the cat.

This is why you carry a gun while out in the wild - in the wild west.

Wyoming Has Polish MiGs for Ukraine

Not long after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the was talk of Poland giving Ukraine some of their MiG fighter planes.

Poland is now part of NATO. So they were willing to part with the older Russian planes for newer and more hi-tech Western planes.

For several reasons, the deal fell through. Ukraine will not get the planes.

HEY Ukraine!
If you're still interested, Wyoming has a few old Polish MiGs we would be happy to give you.
