They will readily appropriate and consume fresh dead carcasses.  When I worked in Casper WY we would regularly get calls about lion kills in yards, many of those were roadkills that the cats dragged further from the road.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

A body found earlier this week in the American River canyon was Yin Wong, the 33-year-old Sacramento woman who went missing Sunday morning, according the Placer County Sheriff’s Office.

Wong’s body had been damaged by a mountain lion, the Sheriff’s Office said in a release Friday, though the animal appeared to have discovered her after she was already deceased.

More than 60 people searched for Wong after her car was found abandoned in Auburn on Sunday morning, her purse and other items a few feet away. She was eventually discovered lying barefoot about a mile from the car.

Night temperatures dipped into the 30s throughout the week, and investigators believed Wong was ill-equipped for the harsh conditions. An autopsy was performed Friday morning, and the cause of her death remains under investigation. There is no evidence of foul play.
:yeah:
Sounds like nature taking it's course. I'm sure there were several animals that had gotten to her.

Several animals, Really?

Seems like a pretty broad brush article, cover all the basis and let the reads form their own opinion..

What kind of animals big tex?   :chuckle:
I'll give one example.  With the owner's blessing, under an agreement to prevent domestic and bighorn sheep from co-mingling, I shot a stray domestic at sunset that was in a bighorn core area.  It fell from a ridge top onto a rock ledge about 1/2 way down a cliff.  The state vet asked me to get lung tissue samples for typing in the event of a subsequent bighorn pneumonia outbreak. 

I returned at dawn and the carcass was gone.  Several magpies in the canyon bottom suggested the carcass was down there (fortunately for me, a much easier location to access).  I watched the brush in the bottom until I saw a coyote come out, which satisfied me there wasn't a cat on the carcass.  In about an 8 hour period, a cougar had found the carcass and dragged it to the canyon bottom, fed and covered it.  It had been discovered and fed on by coyotes and magpies as well.  I'm pretty confident at that location that in another couple of hours ravens and golden eagles would have been on it as well.

I wonder if WDF&wolves have started training teams for wolf - cougar predation on humans?  With the wolves and cougars running low on ungulates, I would think the next step they would be studying is which predators are eating the cross country skiers etc..

Her purse and other items were near her car, She was found a mile away with no shoes?

Did she suffer from dementia?

Or Hypothermic ?

Speaking of being hooked after one taste, maybe the cat will be addicted to meth heads now

It appears she was just in the Wong place at the Wong time.
