I dunno, those cats sometimes just won't back down. Maybe it would have never attacked... maybe it would have... but in the end, as an individual he had to make a call in the moment that possibly would save/cost his life.
The story in Mammoth was a guy that WALKED TO HIS CAR, got his gun, and shot the Bear from 20 feet away... Vastly Different.
