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.

It turns out that our cougar had not taken a 50 mile stroll to the west. Subsequent notification by the data distribution service let us know that there had been a satellite malfunction on the particular dates in question. Our cougar soon showed up again at the north end of Elephant Butte Resevoir.
