We are conducting surveys, monitoring, and research on cougars (puma, mountain lion) on the Ladder Ranch in south-central New Mexico. Here, cougars are of particular interest given their effects on state-endangered desert bighorn sheep and other valuable big game. These projects are also resources for training and education, most notably through the Cougar Field Workshop.

One of our remote cameras picked up this gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus) trotting down the canyon with a packrat (Neotoma sp.) in its mouth. Most of our photos from this camera are of a gray fox, likely this one, or possibly its mate.
