“Her partially consumed remains…” is a line from a newspaper article about a runner who was attacked and killed and eaten (some) by a mountain lion while jogging along the pine needle packed trails north of Santa Cruz, CA, circa 1995.
She was an excellent runner. I’d seen her on those trails lots, and on that day was behind her, gaining, but a good two minutes too late. Witnessed only a quick moment of the eating phase.
Huh uh. Wasn’t me who reported it.
Bliss terror hunger instinct.
The lion, a mother, trotted off as I got close.
