The mountain lion or cougar has the widest range of any predator in the Western Hemisphere – from the Yukon in Canada to the Southern Andes in South America. The Mountain Lion Foundation has a great deal of additional information on this magnificent animal, as does the UC Davis Mountain Lion Project which focuses on Southern California.
Mountain Lion Videos
In the video below a wild Mountain Lion finally captured via my game camera! I set this camera in ten different spots over 6 months and reviewed over 200 videos to get this footage. The camera was positioned on a tree on a remote trail near a perennial spring in the Santa Ana Mountains, and the lion walked past the motion triggered infrared camera at 4 AM one morning. A powerful, magnificent, and wild denizen of the mountains!
