Carcass visitors -- conclusion

There was only skin and bone on the 15th day when the bobcat found the remains. It came shortly after noon, and lingered for 7 minutes. Most of the seven photos show it prowling about and sniffing the ground.

The fox was on the scene 6 hours earlier, and seemed to redistribute some patches of skin. Here the cat looks to be in stalking mode. You can see the deer hair and skin in front of it.

Awesome series- I'd call that a pretty successful camera trap deployment!!

Thanks, Bill. How I wish I had had a camera trap a few times when we found predator kills in India and Nepal!

Outstanding pics of Bobcat! It must be like winning the lottery to get such great results. No road kill yet so thinking about hiring a hit man.lol

Any cows floating down the river? You could try to snake them out.
