Default Cougar catches elk...

Old video, but haven't seen it posted here before...this elk gets THUMPED!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwUfP...eature=related

Not sure any of us would stand a chance in the elks position...Some of this video I'm sure is a "Marty Stouffer" setup, but you can't fake the hit the cougar puts on the elk!

i love your response to the people that have no clue what they are truly doing to our environment. and say that "killing is not a game"... ya its defiantly not a game when a cougar kills your dog/cattle etc.

A few are overboard, that is the truth.

If an elk could get blindsided like that, (with their keen senses), just think how quick they could be on a hunter.

Pay attention boys and girls!!!!

Just saying......If it's real...it's cool. Just like clockwork on here though there are always the naysayers so I'll go first not because I want to be raining on anybodies parade, but if you really slo-mo this video does anyone else wonder if it's legit.....almost looked like they had a stuffed elk stand-in and what about the lack of flailing around on the ground......this is probably a Marty Stouffer deal like commented. Very likely a stage deal in an enclosure with a semi tame cougar etc..... In order to have the players, the lighting, the camera set up, etc....etc.....is a pretty tall order and we all know how Marty did it before. How many cougars do you see in decades and you have your camera set up on a tripod on an elk and track the cat all the way to the elk.....etc....etc.....? Please don't get upset that I question it. Just saying.......

I think the elk was alive (before the couger got it). Watch it again, and see how the elk's reflexes make it jump backward against the couger's onslaught. Very cool. Wish I were so stealthy. Maybe someday....or not.

I think this is several videos spliced together. If you pause the video as the cat pounces on the elk it is very obviously a grown cow, not a calf as the video leads you to believe. Then, what's up with the bull in the sage and junipers running off at the end when the cat pouncing on the cow happened in a forest meadow. Play the video with the sound muted and it is much more boring.

Hollywood at its finest!!!

Yeah, I saw that it was a number of video pieces spliced together and that didn't bother me so much, but the actual cat sequence just looked a little funky.......who knows. Interesting......... One way or the other when they collide there is great impact. I think the sound was dubbed in though. No big deal. Figured I'd get in all kindsa trouble if I said anything, but I must have lucked out.

If you look at the video closely you can see that the left back leg does not lift of the ground. If fact, the elk rebounds back in the direction from which the cat attacks.

I think it is pretty obvious that the animal was tethered in place. I also think it was a calf. The face is pretty short, and the cat takes it down too quickly. Even a small cow is going to go over 300 pounds, and that cat provbably weighs more than the elk.
