Another viral animal video is sweeping the internet. The Utah cougar video shows a terrifying encounter that you'll need to see to believe. 

According to ABC Action News, Kyle Burgess was out for a jog on a trail in Utah that he frequents. 

Burgess had actually shared the video to YouTube with the caption "I found what I thought were bobcats on the trail during a run. Turns out they were cougar cubs and their mother was not happy to see me. She follows me for over six minutes acting very aggressive while I walk backwards up the trail. Very scary cougar encounter."

As you'd expect, the video is terrifying. 

When the jogger came across the cubs, he likely didn't know he was in for a petrifying six-minute standoff with an angry mama mountain lion. 

You hear him shout "Go away! Go Away!," and "I'm big and scary." 

At one point she lunges at him and it honestly made us want to run away from the computer screen.

Eventually, he hurls a rock at her and she retreats so he is able to get away unharmed.
