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.

Here are three more cougar photos from the mountain. The one immediately above the text was taken on the 27th of March in the north central part of the range. The other two were taken in Summer Spring Canyon. We now have 6 cougar photos from this site in Summer Spring Canyon since 9 March. The afternoon photograph is an unusual one. This sort of mid-afternoon movement suggests a kill in the area. However, we have been unable to locate one.
