Wilderness safety expert Kevin Reiter from the Wilderness Safety Institute comes on the show to talk about animal attacks in austere environments. We focus on a recent story about a mountain lion attack on a 6-year-old girl in the San Francisco area.
Kevin and others talk about wild animal hazards in their regions including bears, feral hogs, coyotes, and even stray dogs. The team discusses best practices for avoiding animal attacks and situational awareness.
