This Canadian man went full Rocky-mode on a wild cougar that snatched his pet Dachshund while on a fishing trip a few years ago. The cougar was apparently “starving” and thought the Dachshund would make a tasty treat. The man quickly reacted and punched the cougar in the face. After rescuing the dog the owner grabbed his rifle and found the cougar still acting aggressively. He fired one warning shot and it continued showing aggression towards him so he shot it dead. Local conservation officers agreed that in this instance, lethal force was justified.
