Wild animals taking back road to Marion

Wife and I saw what appeared to be a big cat feeding on a dead deer on Crenshaw Road in Marion today.
When we first saw the cat, we decided to turn around and sit and wait for him to return and it wasn't long before he came back to finish eating his fill. Since the deer was fairly close to the road, the cat would run away every time a car approached.
I have lived here in Southern Illinois most of my life but never saw a big cat like the one we saw today.
