The saga of the deer that the puma hunted continues.

On January 5, I followed some calling magpies, and then dog tracks to find the spine and other rear leg.  This part of the deer was about 100 feet north of where I found the leg.

Then, on January 12, I found another leg, and a length of fur hanging from a tree right next to the trail.  I suspect that the Puma hung the leg there for some reason.

Puma Busy Culling Deer

I found a not-yet-fully-frozen front deer leg today right near where I saw the Puma in the last post.

It was only a few yards from the trail on Winiger Ridge, and about 100 yards east of the power line.

Anybody got a good bone broth recipe?  I think mama puma and her cubs are done with it.  I found the leg about 4 pm, and it was not yet frozen despite the below freezing temperature (maybe around 27 F.)
