Abstract: I consider the stability of cosmic ray precursors near shocks propagating in a high-β plasma. It is shown that the interplay between cosmic ray effects and the classical firehose and mirror instabilities lead to a more vigorous instability. Consequences for cosmic ray acceleration are discussed.
