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 seems that LF1 may have made three kills in the last 9 days. Quite possibly, these are fawns, but only ground checks will tell us for sure. At points 258, 272, and 290 we have clusters. At 290 there are only two locations as of now, but given their proximity to each other it is likely that something of significance has happened here, and that something is likely a kill.
