Andrews Cougar Research:

Panic can set in quickly but will prevent us from having a clear presence of mind and we will make mistakes. Feel the panic, embrace the panic but don't give in to it. Resistance is futile.

The fact that Dee has made a habit out of talking shit to dangerous animals who are stalking her still boggles our mind. That said, increasing our knowledge of animals and their habitat would go a long way in decreasing our anxiety.

"You can't avoid fear but you can learn to control your reaction to it." Denise Gallant

"It's not about being fearless. It's about fearing less." -Andrew Langford/Someone Smarter
