Feed your kids to the puma

I think the people who designed this puma encounter guide failed to realise two important facts: (1) People tend to read pictures as a temporal sequence. (2) Not everybody can read English.

If I ignore the text, my interpretation of this sign would be as follows:

  1. Move backwards, holding out your hand to the puma (to make it follow you?).
  2. Then hold up your hands and scream in terror.
  3. Now get your kids and feed them to the puma.
