When a mountain lion came down from the hills to peek into a house outside Boulder, Colorado, it was surprised to find an ordinary house cat staring it back down. The mountain lion and cat glared at each other for about 30 seconds¬†before the mountain lion decided to leave the house cat’s turf and find some place where it would encounter less resistance.

Tom Mabe, who captured a video of the house cat staring down a mountain lion, told his wife,¬†“Is that crazy or what?”
