bobcat kill

We came upon this bobcat taking down a large fawn quite by accident. This photo was taken after the kill before the bobcat noticed us. Once the cat saw us, she bared her teeth at us and attempted to drag the deer away. She was too tired from the kill and eventually left,staggering. We backed away slowly and left so that the bobcat could return. Yosemite Valley, California.
