New Delhi: What would you do if you came across a trapped angry cougar while on your daily stroll? It's pretty evident that you would be scared out of your wits to even approach the animal and run away. Another option would be to go back and call for a means of tranqulization.

However, two men in Utah did none of these things and opted for something that wouldn't even strike anyone in this situation.

The two men in question found the cougar whose paw was trapped in a bobcat trap. Thinking that it would become a prey to other predators if left alone for a long time, they decided to do the unthinkable.

The men took the matter into their own hands and decided to free the animal themselves.

The video you are about to watch shows how bravely they set the trapped animal free. The cougar is understandably upset about being trapped and has no way of understanding that the men are only trying to help.

Writhing with fear and anger, the cougar tries to make several attempts to attack his saviours, giving way to a dramatic moment of release.
