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 appears that LM1 (Ladder male 1) has a kill on Animas Creek (see map above). LF1 (Ladder female 1) has not changed locations in 10 days now. Optimistically, she may have multiple kills, or she may have given birth to a litter of cubs. For the moment, we will remain optimistic. Hopefully, Megan will be able to tell us something definite in a few days.
