What to Do If There's a Mountain Lion in Your Office

A few weeks ago mountain lion found its way to an office courtyard in Santa Monica, California. Residents panicked and the animal was killed after attempts to tranquilize it failed. Business Week and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks offers the following advice should you encounter a mountain lion in the work place.
  • Don’t approach it, don’t run, don’t crouch.
  • Instead, try to appear larger.
  • If under attack, fight back with bear pepper spray, rocks, sticks, caps, jackets, garden tools, a firearm, or whatever you have at hand.
  • Close a door between you and the animal
  • Don’t try to be a mountain lion whisperer, "People think they can walk up to an animal and gently deal with it. You can’t."
  • Don’t throw anything at it
  • Just get away from it
