7:35 am
started rolling around on the ground? how did this all kind of play out? >> after it jumped on me, i tried to throw it off of me. unfortunately its mouth was still pretty wrapped around my wrist and claws dug into my ock. we tumbl the side of the trail together and went downslope. luckily how we tumbled i was able to kind of get on top of the cat. >> y're on topf the cat and reaching for whatever -- i should point out, you are about r'10", you're 155 and trying to be larhan life. you pick up rocks and sticks, just anything how is the cat reacting? >> the cat is pretty much just clawing. it still has my wrist in its mouth w thele time. >> i think i read you had a mountain lioth or something lodged in your hand? >> the tooth didn't stay. it was latched. so one tooth wasn my wrist and
