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.

These two photos were taken a week apart. This particular camera seems to be having trouble focusing. However, we can discerne what appears to be evidence of lactation on the cougar in the bottom photo. Compare it to the cat in the top photo.
