It might be just me, but I think the strips themselves might be interesting as well. I know you might not want to keep every frame, but a set of shots lined up like this to tell a story over time might be interesting. I could see the sequence on an art gallery wall, for instance. Obviously you can't reproduce the full color camera trap, but a flash would just scare it away. But you have this unique ability to document its behavior.
For example, I once read a book about mountain lions in Arizona, and from that I always understood they hid the carcass under a bush, or semi buried to come back to for several days. This seems a bit different. Maybe it is it cold and wet instead of hot and dry its worth it to leave it more out in the open. And then there is the "playing" part.
Edit: was just looking for it and I think it was this one: "Soul Among Lions", Harley Shaw.
On top of the fact that this seem like the only way to get information about what the ML does when no one is around, I'm guessing people who study MLs in the area would be interested.
By any chance do you know if this in one of your "regular visitors" from before?
