Most lions will avoid confrontation with,umrs. Gige them a wa t escape. * Do not run from a moun- tain lion. Running may stimu- late a lion's instinct to chase. Instead, stand and face the ani- mal. Although it may be awk- ward, pick up small children without bending over or turn- "i'ng away from the lion. • Do not crouch or bend over.
