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 minutes of searching revealed the identity of the pelvis' previous owner - a most unfortunate beaver (Castor canadensis). First, we found a forelimb, then a scattering of parts including a hindlimb, a tail, and a skull.
