I post this because I live in North Idaho, and you have no idea of the strange crap we have seen. A few days ago, I noticed a deer carcass in the pasture in front of our house, We have no rights to that pasture, so we let things lay as they were. I went outside for a smoke, and a HUGE bald eagle swooped in to scavenge... as soon as I ran in the house to grab my Nikon, he took off... and was replaced by Turkey Vulture. The Eagles and Vultures fought over the carcass all day... that night... the big cats showed up. They had their turn at the carcass, then the coyotes came in. The coyotes came in a bit close to our chicken coop... 00 Buck-shot takes care of that pretty quick...

For two nights after that, we had big cats (mountain lions) on our property every night; and wolves and coyotes.... and tonight I had a moose try to MATE with my Impala... I wonder if the deer carcass inspired lust in the moose... I also wonder if my dual exhaust will ever be the same....

Awesome. Did you get any pics of the feed?

Leaving nature to take its course. Hats off.

If you had removed the carcass all that wildlife would have been deprived. As is you got a front seat to a marvel, good show.


Edit: stop shooting coyotes…

I got an awesome pic of a bald eagle parked on the carcass... the problem is that my Nikon takes 15MP pics and they are HUGE... I will scale a pic down... I got a great shot of a bald eagle at about 100 yards

I paid 12 grand cash for my Impala... do I have rights to a Moose/Impala offspring?

Would you call it a Moospala or an Impoose?

Similar situation for me once. Only it was the front half of a young deer carcass. Just the head and front shoulders and legs and that's it. My dog was walking with it in it's mouth like a trophy. At first I thought it was a rabbit by the look of it.

How it was perfectly severed like that I'll never know and the dog didn't seem to care.

We have two Belgian Mali's... they were chomping at the bit to investigate.

Thanks for the reply. The coyotes weren't after his chickens, they were after the carcass, like all the rest.

I will post pics as soon as I can figure out how to scale a 15MP Nikon image to a "share-able" size. And, for the record, our Belgians will DESTROY any trespassers


Mountain Lions and Liberals all digest the same

Your dogs wouldn't stand a chance against a full grown mountain lion. Not that the lion would hang around to find out if they rushed it.

About cameras, ever consider a critter cam? They take good close ups, video and pics.

Stake it out near a carcass, go to sleep and review 'all' the critters next day.

I'd put money on my Roo dog... a pissed off 80lb Belgian Malinois will slam and kill anything in her way. I LOVE that dog

My money is on the wild animal, especially a cougar. More than likely they made the kill, will probably be 'around' till its consumed. Don't let your dogs anywhere near it for now.

There really is no competition, as long as the dogs don't get too close. Like these two, they seem to know better…

We have 2 Belgian Malinois... Either one of our dogs on their own could destroy a mountain lion. They call them "Mali-gators" for a reason.
