    What do you expect from a kid named "Pike"?

    'I tried to punch it in the eye': 8-year-old boy fights off mountain lion attack with a stick.

    A mountain lion bit Pike Carlson in the head and dragged him down a hill near his Bailey home. The 8-year-old fought back.


    Talk about some good scars to impress future girlfriends. This kid already has more warrior ethos than a street filled with antifa.

    This kid is all kinds of brave. I am glad it turned out as well as it did. Now that's an all American boy.
    I think Pike needs a new nickname. Any ideas?
    Perhaps TOCHO which is Hopi for mountain lion.

    IDK...I think "Pike" is perfect.

    Amazing that the boy is alive and doing as well as he is. The bite force of a mountain lion's jaws is 350 lbs./sq.inch. That is enough to crush a human skull. They is a fighter. He did not panic to the point of not trying to defend himself against overwhelming odds. I think a good name might Pike the Lionhearted.

    This kid has learned that he can overcome anything if he just keeps fighting. Mountain lions kill for a living. Surviving an attack is no small victory.
    Has anyone tried turning the country off and then back on again?
