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 looks like our female cougar has made another kill. This map shows her locations over the last week. She has traveled counter-clockwise in a large circle. In the southwestern quarter of this circle there is a cluster of locations spanning almost 24 hours. Hopefully, we'll know soon what has gone on here.
