These chilling photos were taken just a couple of days ago by Bryan Peterson, director of Bear Smart.
They were taken on private land up Lightner Creek, west of Durango. They show a fresh-killed yearling deer, loosely buried in debris, and surrounded by large lion tracks.
Needless to say, after taking these quick pics, he didn't hang around long.
And "I not going back to this place anytime soon," Bryan added.
