Predator and Prey: Mountain Lion and Very Pregnant Doe Caught on Game Camera
A video from a game camera posted today by wildlife tracker Kim Cabrera seems particularly on point. Cabrera describes the video below:
A very pregnant doe walked past my camera on June 5, 2018. She was foraging for food and walking along slowly. Ten minutes later, a mountain lion is seen in stealthy stalking mode as he hunts, presumably for the deer.
I went back to this location after I found these videos and searched for any sign of a struggle, but found none. Perhaps she escaped? Perhaps the puma was after something else? I walked the area within about 1/8 mile all around and found no sign that he had caught this doe. I am hopeful.
The lion, however, is a little less fat and happy without the deer dinner.
