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.

LF1 seems to have captured another prey item about three miles due west of her last cache (see map below). Today, Megan Pitman is doing her best to navigate washed out roads in order to investigate the two prey caches of LF1 and LM1 shown in the map below. Since April, she has investigate 29 prey caches from 4 different cougars.
