Remember last month when trailcamera pictures flooded the internet showing an adult whitetail buck being taken by a pair of coyotes?

While this latest batch of photos hasn’t drawn the same attention from whitetail hunters (likely because it doesn’t involve a big buck), they do show an adult deer being taken by a bobcat, one of nature’s most prolific hunters. Furthering the proof recent studies have had in many states, showing that bobcats do contribute to deer predation.

While its unclear in which part of the country the trailcam photos were taken, they are proof of a single bobcat's powerful ability.
