It’s amazing how many people put their lives on the line to help others and conversation officers do so to also help animals. Cougars are very dangerous and when a cougar got its paw stuck in a trap, Utah conservation officers knew they had to act quickly.
As both Utah conservation officers start to help him, the trapped cougar hisses and growl at them. There are a lot of tense moments and watching this trapped cougar rescue by brave conservation officers is definitely a nail-biting experience!
