Neither seemed too concerned with me talking quietly to my dog, telling him to stay,(which he did). they finally ambled off into the woods. Amazing how quietly they did that considering their size!

Had to submit this one because of the happy ending...

While we were hiking, this dog came right up to us and sat right on my feet. We started calling out, but it was clear he didn't have an owner within earshot. We actually used our whistle, and were able to attract the attention of the owner -- who was clearly at quite a distance, but looking frantically for her dog. By this time, the dog had laid down and refused to move an inch (super hot, humid weather today). We gave him water from our emergency canteen (easier than the camel back), and then I started trying to zero in on the owner. We finally met her half-way back to the parking area, and boy... happy momma + happy dog!

This was an hour-long trailing experience. A family of three mountain lions killed a deer at one end of the riverbar. They then dragged it all the way to the other end and into the brush, where they fed on it for several days. This observation shows the first part of the trail with the kill site and evidence that the prey was a deer is shown. Will show other sections of the trail later. The deer was in brush and the mountain lions (2 of them from the track evidence) jumped it from the embankment above. It was quickly dispatched and one lion carried it out into the open. One of the cubs helped drag the carcass, as evidenced by the tracks. Video will be posted soon.

This was an hour-long trailing experience. A family of three mountain lions killed a deer at one end of the riverbar. They then dragged it all the way to the other end and into the brush, where they fed on it for several days.

This observation shows the last part of the trail with the kill site. All that remained of the deer were the legs, the cranium and mandibles, a single scapula, some fur, and the contents of the rumen. (The large green mass in the photos.) There were several resting sites (beds) in the grass, where the family of three pumas had rested in between feeding bouts. The carcass had initially been buried closer to the riverbar, but they moved it, likely due to my own activities. I live right above this and had been out and about above them, without even being aware of their presence. They are quite stealthy. Until I found the tracks, I never suspected they were in the close vicinity, although I was aware of the family of three from previously finding their tracks. The last images are somewhat dark as it was after sunset when I finished trailing this out.

This was an hour-long trailing experience. A family of three mountain lions killed a deer at one end of the riverbar. They then dragged it all the way to the other end and into the brush, where they fed on it for several days.

This observation shows the central part of the trail. At one point, one of the smaller mountain lions, assumed to be one of the nearly-grown kittens, assisted the mother lion in carrying the carcass. It left a consistent drag mark, so they were not able to lift it completely off the ground. I found it interesting that two were cooperating to carry the kill. The tracks showed evidence of bearing extra weight due to increased toe splay, push-offs in the soil, claws deployed for traction, and the position in the trail. The nail marks are thin and sharp and on a plane above the base of the toe marks in the track. Fur on the ground indicated the identity of the prey, as did drag marks presumed to be from the hooves.

Wow. Imagine our surprise when we looked up!

Thought immediately of a felid cache, but the skeptic in me wondered if someone had put this here as a prank, or perhaps to draw predators to a nearby trail cam. Have taken a ton a photos to help rule out the former, and had a good look around for trail cams to help rule out the later. There did not appear to be any obvious trail cams nearby; did a 360-degree photo and will try to examine that a little more closely in the comfort of our home!

Also thought about the possibility of an eagle (or similar) scavenging a carcass, and dropping this from above. After getting a second look at the branches involved, and knowing the properties of bur oak, am thinking that is extremely unlikely, as the force of a falling deer hind would very likely have broken the supporting branches.

Wild felids get my attention, so we took tons of photos, a video, and, as I mention above, a panorama/360-degree shot. The most useful photos (to my eye) appear here, but if anyone wants to see something in specific, perhaps the other photos might contain the detail you're looking for.

The branches holding up the carcass are about 2.2 m off the ground.

In terms of how long this has been in the tree, I wanted to mention that we've had light but relatively steady snow for the past few days (.6, 1, 1.5, .2, .4, .6, .5 mm for the first seven days of January). We photographed disturbances in snow on the ground 1.5 m from the tree, but these are not likely related to the cache: they seem to be too fresh.

Am not sure if this is related to other carnivore signs we observed today (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/104621747, https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/104621748, https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/104621749, https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/104621746).
