Eric Martin was recently hunting for bobcats with a decoy and predator call and had his video camera rolling when a much larger cat showed up on the scene.
In this short clip, it looks like the lion seemingly materializes from the brush. But later review reveals that it was actually present through most of the scene. If you enlarge, view at the highest quality setting, and look closely, you can see the cougar enter the frame in the first few moments of the footage. Obviously confused by the decoy, the cat approaches with caution and doesn’t waste time retreating when it realizes the ruse.
