There was a news story out in our city last week that 2 meter long poisonous snakes were scene in the city. They were spotted not too far from one of the paths I go running on. Luckily, I have not run into any snakes yet on any of my runs. Most of the animals I see are wild cats running around. Some nights I do see bats.
I know in certain parts of the US and world, you need to be aware of bears and mountain lions. Have you ever encountered a wild animal on your run? If so what did you do?
