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.

Today's collar download from LF1 contained very little data. In fact we only received four satellite fixes for the last three days. We have no data from the collar on her whereabouts for the 14th and only one data point for the 15th. Fortunately, we had enough to know that she was still on the mule deer kill that Megan recently verified (see photos below). One data point, number 170 is interesting. It shows that she was apparently a few kilometers from the kill on the 15th, but has since returned.
