Pesky Critters on the Pacific Crest Trail

Here’s an article on troublesome critters that hikers could encounter on the Pacific Crest Trail. Five such critters are discussed. I have included here a quote about Mountain Lions from that article:

Mountain lions can be a bit troubling. They are much bigger than you think, weighing as much as a couple hundred pounds. They are also known to track humans on the trail, but attacks are extremely rare. If you do happen upon one, do not run away or start screaming. Mountain lions are predators, so don’t act like prey. Just stand there or calmly back away. Try to grab a stick or even a can of mace if you have one.

Read about the other four critters here.
