On the way out yesterday, my neighbors were stopped in the drive talking. I waited behind them and one came up to me and told me a deer was at the side and the entire back end had been eaten. He told he he checked my horses and they seemed okay.
(I feed and check my horses every morning and had already done so.)
He took care of the carcass and sure enough, it was a cougar that had killed the deer. The part that bothers me is that it was just across from the horse stalls and one ole horse is lame. Hopefully, there are enough other wildlife to keep the cougar away from my horses.
