Woman saves husband with a pen

Jim & LionJim and Nell Hamm were walking in the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park when a mountain lion wrestled Jim to the ground. Her husband did not scream but expressed a horrible plea for help.

Nell started hitting the animal with the log but it kept hold of Jim's head. She then tried to stick the pen in its eye. The cougar eventually let go.

The park, 320 miles (515km) north of San Francisco, was closed after the incident and wardens tracked down and killed a pair of lions near the trail where the attack happened.
