Can't figure out why this cow elk isn't stomping on this cougar with her hoofs?
Good luck, Robb
I wonder how long that cat has been latched on?
Panic, shock, who thinks clearly when a cougar is around your neck???
Wow, the cycle of life is harsh sometimes.
They look like they are just being friends
She's afraid of retaliation.
That’s an awesome pic
Incredible capture there. Yes, the pic may have been taken after 10 minutes of struggle. Who knows.
All she needs to do is lay down on that SOB and squeeze the last breath out of him.
"Panic, shock, who thinks clearly when a cougar is around your neck???"
Or in your face. ;)
Looks like a big cat!
Not thinking clearly is generally how you end up with a cougar on your neck in the first place.... :-)
Damn! Suck deal for that cow elk. Kevin
Claws in the eyes tend to disorient.
Dead elk standing.
Probably too exhausted and afraid she’ll get pulled down if she tries to stand up on three legs.
Tripod should be stable, but maybe she missed that day in school?
Pretty sure it’s over as soon as she’s off of her feet.
Wow! Awesome picture. Hard to tell the whole story from a still photo. One thing is for sure. That’s a big cat. Look at the size of his body in comparison to the elks. Thanks for sharing.
Agreed, that's a really big Tom !
Common sense likely left her as she was being suffocated to death.

I don't believe you can pick your hooves up with your head being pulled down.
or just drop\lay down on the cat - would crush the lion...

It's kinda funny how some hunters sympathize with the elk in that pic. As a predator myself, I'm actually happy for the cat. He's about to eat very well.
Unbelievable photo and luck of camera placement to capture such an event! Did you get any other photos of the action?

I had a cougar choke me once. I was lucky to get away:) Hunt
Hunter, good thing she didnt handcufff you to the bedposts first!
Hunt, you were asking for it wearing those Attack pants.
