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.

On Thursday we found cub tracks along Animas Creek. There is a strong possibility that this cub belongs to the female that was photographed on the elk calf cache earlier this summer (see previous post). Mike Connealy provided us with photographs of two of thse tracks (above) taken on Saturday, 9 August.
