Cougar Tracks

January 22, 2017

Winter nights are long and dark – and home to mountain lions. But despite numerous cougar tracks in the snow, my trail cameras have managed to capture only the tip of a tail and a shadowy cougar shape moving through the dark. Unlike cougars (also known as mountain lions), trail cameras do not operate well in below zero weather. I do hope to see a cougar – at a distance and perhaps sleeping and unaware of me.  I confess to checking over my shoulder carefully when I find cougar tracks. It is probably best to respect large predators!

I am posting  videos of a cougar family video captured this summer and fall.  Perhaps one or two of these animals have left the tracks I see now as they hunt deer, turkeys and hares in the night.
