KAMLOOPS — A Kamloops resident caught a rare glimpse of the circle of life in action outside the city last night.

Marlene Huber was driving on Red Lake Road west of the city last night when she came across a cougar in the middle of the road, trying to secure an evening meal — a deer.

The deer escaped once, but was taken down again by the big cat.

After a few more seconds of struggle in front of the vehicle headlights, the deer escaped again, with the cougar sauntering off in the opposite direction.

Huber says that was the end of the encounter — at least from what she saw.
