Looks like hyena to the left of the kill... perhaps the lion have had enough and moved away?

PJL - The carcass has been moved a bit to the right bringing it more into pan-reach of the webcam :D It was a bit to the left (in picture) last night and behind the small tree).

I think the hyaenas (and/or perhaps the lions) got the email from me and moved the carcass into cam view! :wink:
