A lynx attacks an adult mule deer in an intense video that was recently shared online.

The rare footage shows the determined lynx attack and take down the full grown deer. Canada lynxes can weigh up to forty pounds, while an adult mule deer doe can weight up to 200 pounds… Needless to say, this is an impressive feat for the little lynx!


The action went down mere feet from the surprised onlookers’ truck.

The aggressive lynx was able to successfully kill the deer, and after the fight he seemed pretty happy with himself:
