I'm accustomed . Even if we haven't cougars we have bears, wolves and lynxes.
But I haven't met anybody of them because I've never camped and avoid deep forests & other untouched backblocks. We have a outhouse at our summercottage (the distance between the cottage and the outhouse is perhaps 20 to 40 meters). I can barely use it during nighttime because I'm afraid that I come across a bear or a wolf if I leave the cottage.
