A big cat kill?

The big cat debate is one that I’m interested in, so Field Day readers often contact me to share their views.

Farmers Weekly received an email over the weekend from a lady who lives near Banbury in Oxfordshire. Yesterday, she discovered the carcass of a deer in the field next to her house and took this photo. She reckons the short trail of blood shows it was attacked and brought down very quickly.

She said she saw a couple of really big foxes come and eat some of the carcass last night, but she doubts if they killed it. Then when she went back out this morning, she found lots of fox pawprints but also some much bigger ones – see the photo below.
