Was one killed near rocky a week ago. And just over a month ago two Llamas killed in a barn near my house. Getting to be not so surprising!
I hunt sheep to see over the next mountain not to measure the next trophy!

It sounds like the cat population may peaking in your area. We had similar problems last year in GC with dogs an live stock being killed by weak and emaciated cats. F&W was saying the cat pop. maxed out and the starving cougars were getting desperate.
