By the time we happened by, the clean up was well underway, but we still wanted to set a cam to see who the late mourners might be.
Unfortunately, all we had was a low-qual Moultrie trail cam. But they do video, so we set it for that, and figured we'd pretty much get lots o' grainy vids of vultures by day 'n coyotes by night.
Camera set on the late horse
Alas, all we really caught was curious cattle and cattle dogs. And the cattle quickly knocked the cam around until it was pointing at nothing but rocks and ground.
As you can see below, we did get one short video that's fun and educational.
Seems kitty, who came up from the creek (stage right in scene), didn't like the smell of the humans and dogs, and decided to exit the scene cautiously yet quickly...
Probably not a bad quality to have in mountain lions.
That, and a taste ONLY for deer...
