We’ve received a lot of comments about the Eastern Cougar (or Catamount), here at NETrailhead. Some of the reports make us wonder if there really are cougars out there.
On April 14, you can find out more.
Mark McCollough, a biologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, recently completed the first status review of the eastern cougar since it was federally listed in the 1970s. Mark will talk about the history of the cougar in eastern North America, their demise, and future. Are there cougars in the East? If so, where are they coming from? Mark will provide the latest science-based explanations of the “cougar phenomenon.”
