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.

Now, switching back to our male cougar, the above map shows all of his recorded movements since the 1st of March. Again, it seems that if our data are correct and this cougar did shift his movements to the west following the application of tiger urine, he seems to be settling back down to his usual routine. Actually, it seems that he's spending a little more time in this area than usual. Although, a possible kill located in the vicinity of the two yellow dots could explain this.
