Mountain Lions Feeding on Deer in SEKI Video

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Mountain Lions Feeding on Deer in SEKI Video

SEKI Facebook:
This is a video of mountain lions feeding on a deer kill in Sequoia National Park. The rangers received a report of a dead deer and the wildlife biologist set up this camera to see if the mountain lions came back. They did! This is a great habitat for mountain lions as there is a large mule deer population in this region, which is their primary food source in the parks. They are elusive by nature and are rarely seen, but evidence of them can be found in most regions of Sequoia & Kings Canyon.

Well.. That is what they eat. Better deer than people, maybe. I've watched 3 vids since you posted this but not the one posted. I didn't feel it would be appropriate to post some of them. Most were kills.
