24 hours isn't a lot of time. You know the drill: get some sleep, grab a bite, work 8 hours, squeeze in lunch and dinner, walk the dog and go for a bike ride or watch TV if there's any time left.

But for this cougar with a freshly killed elk near the town of Banff, life is more focussed. And when the 24-hour feed is over, a few of Banff National Park's scavengers waste little time moving in.

Not much gets wasted - time or food - in the wild.
