Living in a rural area just south of Nanaimo, B.C., Mandy Weisbrod is used to seeing wild bears in her backyard, but what she saw there this week sent her running for her camera.

"I looked out the window and went what is that, that can't be what it is," Weisbrod said.

What she saw was a cougar feeding on a deer it apparently had just killed.
