Tales from the wild west:

Kyra Kopestonsky says she was stalked by a mountain lion. In fear for her life, ‘I don’t know why, I just started singing opera really loud, she said. ‘It kind of put its ears down and just kept looking at me, and it sort of backed away. Then, it came around the bushes an came towards me again and crouched about 10 feet away.’

A critic, maybe?
