Wildlife Enthusiast Finds Something Terrifying Waiting Patiently Inside His Fox Trap [Video]

A wildlife enthusiast who enjoys capturing and isolating foxes in a cage so he can study them before releasing them back into the wild, recently discovered something a lot more feisty and fierce than a fox had wandered into his trap by mistake.

When the unnamed man with a natural affinity with wild animals returned to check on his trap one fine morning, expecting to find a unsuspecting, bewildered and frightened fox trapped in his claustrophobic and makeshift cage, he finds something that upped the ante somewhat in terms of trapping wild animals.

In his trap, which wouldn’t look out of place in the Blair Witch Project or the Walking Dead, he stumbled across something not quite as terrifying as a zombie or old hag of the woods, but something just as lethal and capable of spontaneous and and deadly acts of violence.

For waiting in the trap, snarling, spitting, baying for blood and furiously pacing in a terrible rage because it had been imprisoned in such an underhanded way, was, drum roll please, a mountain lion.

This beautiful big cat who – born free to live wild, and become both master and commander of her destiny – ended up trapped and vulnerable in little more than a fortified rabbit hut. Oh the indignity! Needless to say, the mountain lion was more than a bit miffed at being put in such a predicament.

The cat’s anger is evident in the YouTube video uploaded by the wildlife enthusiast’s wife, Justin Casey. Snarling and hissing, the lady lion launches itself at the door of the cage every time the wildlife enthusiast draws near.
