Hot Pursuit: Nebraska Trail Camera Captures Cougar Attacking Deer

Cougar sighting stories in the Great Plains states used to carry with them a sense of mystery and lore like one would encounter with a Sasquatch tale. Those days are gone though as more and more midwesterners are seeing cougars and hard evidence in the form of trail cam images are popping up like thistles in a pasture.


The latest cougar sighting comes from Valentine, Nebraska where a trail cam owned by Kirk Sharp captured an amazing cougar attacking deer sequence as reported by the Omaha World Herald. A mature cougar was apparently jonesing for venison as the image shows the predator just steps behind a whitetail deer that forgot it was invited to the dinner party.

I wonder if Sharp will think twice about heading out to hunt in the woods the incident happened. Would it impact your hunting plans?
