Cat Scratch Fever: Cougars Devour Deer on Film

These photos were taken by Dan & Arlette Schweitzer, of Keystone, South Dakota
on October 9, 2008. The photos are of an adult female cougar and apparently her 2
nearly grown cubs. They were feeding on a white-tailed deer killed by the cougars
near the Schweitzer property just west of Hayward, South Dakota, and about 4 miles
east of Keystone. The adult female has a yellow ear tag, and cougar researcher, Brian
Jansen of South Dakota State University, believes she was a study animal that had
recently slipped her collar. The pictures are not of any cougars in Buffalo or Trempealeau
Counties in WI, or any location in northern Minnesota.
