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.

Although we haven't found any more large kills made by LM-1, he made a small kill sometime in the late night of the 25th or the early morning of the 26th at GPS point 40. He killed and nearly completely consumed a Gray Fox (Urocyon cineroargenteus) right along Animas Creek, where I found only a bit of its tail and fur leftover.
