Sierra de Andujar Take 2

After many hours in the field searching for Iberian Lynx, something special happened.
On our last evening we found this beauty feeding on a deer carcass. 80-90% of the Iberian Lynx diet is the Rabbit.
They will feed on deer carrion on occasions if rabbit densities are low. The animal returned to the carcass the
following morning and covered the carcass with grass to prevent any scavenging from other birds or mammals.
