I've seen Black Bears less than a hundred feet from me. I've had a 10/12 foot Alligator chase me. (funny story behind that) I've HEARD but didn't see a Cougar/Mountain Lion. Yes, they sound just like in the movies and that was probably the most scared I've been due to wildlife. Heard and seen wolves many times. Heard/seen/killed Rattlesnakes. (tough and chewy to eat.) Sharks within 20 feet of me, no cage. Coyotes ....... well, they don't really count. They are starting to encroach ....well, everywhere now. Cities even. Cowardly unless cornered too, so less dangerous to Humans.
