A Colorado woman who was out hiking was able to scare away a mountain lion by singing opera.

The woman said the lion was about 10 to 15 feet away from her and was staring her down.

She grabbed a tree branch to look more threatening but the lion didn’t move. It wasn’t until the woman started singing opera loudly that the lion started to back away.

The animal did lunge at her a few times but it eventually ran off.

The sheriff’s office said it is only the second incident with a mountain lion that they have had.

I wonder if it would have worked if there were rappers who started to rap? Naw.....- Alan
