Best hiking story ever: Man attacked by a mountain lion is saved by a bear!

A Paradise, California, man named Robert Biggs was hiking in nearby mountains this week when he came upon a bear and her cubs. After watching them from a distance, he said he turned around to walk away only to find himself suddenly under attack by a mountain lion!

Fortunately, he was wearing a large backpack, which the lion latched onto. He tried to dislodge the cat with a rock pick, but without success.

Suddenly, the mother bear "pounced" on the mountain lion, and scuffled with it until it ran away. The bear and cubs wandered off, leaving Biggs conspicuously un-eaten, and with the best hiking story ever.
