63 year old man stabs 220 pound mountain lion to death while falling off a cliff.

Posted on August 26, 2019 by FerFAL

“I wasn’t scared” said Vicente Navarrete, from Rio Negro, Argentina. “It was him or me”.

After stabbing the puma with his knife a few times to save his dog Pico, Vicente improvised a spear and went after the big cat, chased it to a cave. He stabbed the wild animal and hit it with his iron boleadoras (bolas). The animal went down but as VIcente got closer it jumped back up and attacked him. As he kept fighting the animal they both fell off a cliff. Vicente was severely wounded, bleeding in several places and his wrist was broken where the mountain lion bit him.

When the puma final bled out, he asked the animal “are you dead yet?”. Then proceeded to apply a tourniquet using his boleadoras. About 10 hours later he was finally found and rescued.

This is the picture the rescue crew took of Vicente, holding his knife. That’s a big, well used knife people! No 3″ wood carving neck knife? Obviously he knows nothing about bushcrafting and real survival. Some youtube expert needs to explain to this man that you dont need a big Rambo knife for real survival tasks such as making feather sticks and carving fancy bowls and spoons.

And the dead puma.



That’s one tough 63 year old folks. Vicente said he usually carries a gun but this time he went to check things out without it.

It’s always the day you leave your tools behind that you end up needing them.

That would have been an awesome way to go. Fighting a mountain lion on fire as you fall off a clip. Or fighting sharks as you fall into an active volcano.

Maybe he carried that big knife because he knew a big Puma was lurking around... I'm giving the dude a little jungle credit here... even though he "chased him into a cave". LOL Not too bright there, but maybe he didn't want a wounded Puma around.. so maybe he has his reasons for that too. Regardless, He's loves his dog... he can't be too bad of a guy.

Yeah, at first it doesnt sound as the smartest thing to do. But the article also said he has already killed 20 pumas (bet many of them using a knife, in the traditional dog and knife hunting, common over there) so I think he felt confident about his odds. Hey, at the end of the day the cat is dead and the old man is still very much alive.

They think differently there. Grab a minute and google "Sasha Seimel" and hold on for the ride.

Truly a ballsy bunch.

220... by the looks of it someone added an extra "0". The really big ones don't get that big down there.

Good for him regardless. I wouldn't care to try stabbing a lynx. Likely to need a bunch of stitches, and antibiotics.
