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.

As we suspected our collared male had made a kill last week. Field biologist Chris Jones investigated the small cluster of yellow points indicated on the map below, and found fresh scat and a mule deer kill (above).
