A dad in Tahsis, British Columbia has just won the award for Most Badass Father after responding to a cougar attacking his daughter by punching it in the goddamn head.
Travis Nielsen was relaxing in his backyard with his wife and two-year-old daughter Bree when, out of nowhere, a cougar leapt at Bree.
Some people may have reacted by running, or freezing up, or wetting themselves. But not Nielsen. He punched the beast in the side of the head.
Bree suffered two puncture wounds on her back, one on her chest, and a laceration on her ear lobe. While Nielsen said he's a bit shaken up, he said Bree is doing well.
According to CBC News, conservation officers found and destroyed a cougar after the attack. Nielsen said authorities have also set up traps.
In the mean time, he and Bree are staying inside.
