Glacier National Park Mountain Lion Attacks Big Horn Sheep, Both Fall to Gruesome Deaths on Park Road [Photos]
Warning! The photos in the link below are disturbing examples of how brutal nature can be. Bighorn sheep are keen climbers, capable of navigating some of the most treacherous cliff faces that Glacier National Park has to offer. However, even a bighorn sheep is no match for the impact of both gravity and a full-grown mountain lion.
As the broken horns and fractured bones suggest, the mountain lion attacked the bighorn sheep while looking for an easy meal, and wound up pushing his victim just a few inches too far. Both ended up plummeting far enough to spell instant death. The mountain lion even appears to have had his last meal, though there wasn’t enough time to swallow.
