General | January 13, 2018

A hunter in Idaho, seeking to lure in a deer to fill his freezer, instead lured in a reclusive predator—and he caught it all on tape.

The hunter captured video of a mountain lion as it slowly stalked its prey. It drew closer and closer, ready to make the kill, only to realize something was not quite right. Turns out it was just a decoy leaving the lion puzzled and hungry.
