Skunk Scares Off Cougar in Camera Trap Photo


A skunk-versus-cougar face-off was caught on film by a camera trap in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada.

"The cougar was looking at the skunk like it might be lunch, and the skunk was looking at cougar like 'you're going to regret this decision,'" said Dennis Madsen, resource conservation manager for the park, who helps manage the hidden cameras. "The cougar chose the path of wisdom and decided to go elsewhere," Madsen told OurAmazingPlanet.

The unusual encounter, snapped in March, is one of thousands of camera trap images that reveal the hidden lives of animals in Waterton Lakes. [See the camera trap images.]
