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.

This cougar was photographed in Silver Canyon on 23 May. Another cougar photograph was obtained from this location on 26 March (see April posts). As with the photographs of the cougar in Summer Spring Canyon, we are struck by the fact that these cats seem to travel precisely the same path, even in a relatively wide and seemingly uniform wash.
