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.

Several miles south, on the eastern side of the Fra Cristobal range in Silver Canyon, we captured this photo on the 26th of March at 7:20 pm. Unfortunately, the image is blurred by movement. However, we can see that this cougar has a significantly distended stomach. It is likely that it has recently fed.
