These is sad to hear about, but I wonder why they didn't dismount and use their bikes as "defense" shields as I and I'm sure others have done with dogs.

Maybe they would have tried to do that, but a cougar's not a dog.

Cats stalk their prey. They attack from behind. They are lighting quick. There is no dismount bike to use a shield. No human is faster than a cat.
