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.

A few days later, on the 19th of March, we retrieved these two photos of a cougar on the river. These photographs were taken at 1:30 and 3:30 pm respectively. Given the time of travel and the fact that the cougar (almost certainly the same animal) was traveling in both directions, it is very likely that it had a kill in the immediate vicinity.
