Cougars are a potentially dangerous animal, although attacks on humans are rare.

When you walk or hike in the forest, go in small groups and make enough noise to prevent surprising a cougar. Pepper spray and a sturdy walking stick are a good idea to carry to ward off an animal. Make sure children are close to you and under control at all times
Do not approach a cougar.
Most cougars will avoid a confrontation.
Stop, stay calm and don't run. Fleeing or quick movements may trigger an attack.
Face the animal, stand upright, talk calmly and firmly to it, and give it a way to escape.
Do all you can to appear larger. Open your jacket. Raise and wave your arms.
Pick up small children immediately so they won't panic, flee, or make rapid movements.
If a cougar behaves aggressively, become more assertive: shout loudly at it, throw branches or rocks, or whatever you can, without crouching or turning your back.
Fight back if it attacks you. Remain standing or try to get back up.

FACT OF INTEREST:
A cougar can leap over a bus... the long way!
