The cougar (Puma concolor) feeds mainly on deer throughout its range. Here we have set up trail cameras around a deer that has been buried by a cougar and we have captured it on video when it returns to feed on its prize. If you come across an animal buried in the snow like this it is wise to be extra cautious as you leave the area because cougars will often bed close by their food cache.
In this video you will hear coyotes barking nearby and the cougar leaves the cache to investigate. The coyotes quickly go silent (I imagine they left as soon as they knew the cougar was on the move) and the cougar returns to its meal.
