Lots of big animal bones

There's an area I hike at Ed. R. Levin County Park that seems to have an inordinate number of big mammal bones (6 deer and 6 domestic cattle since November 2020). Makes me wonder if a mountain lion lives nearby? Bones found at Ed R. Levin County Park.

Description

Bones of a dead cow.
Cause of death was probably predation. These bones were not far from the deer bones. Perhaps there's a mountain lion in this area.

These bones were scattered around 30 square ft. There seemed to be a cache of bones up against a fallen tree.
