PEEC would like to thank the community and some special helpers for a fantastic program about cougars and people.
We were fortunate enough to have Ken Logan, wildlife biologist for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, came to PEEC Aug. 12 to talk about cougars and their interactions with people, to a crowd of about 60. His talk made it clear that we live in cougar country and gave some practical tips on how to stay safe.
One point that he stressed was to be in contact with your neighbors. If you see tracks, scat or a mountain lion, call your neighbors and let them know there’s been a sighting in your neighborhood. The more aware people are, the more likely they are to take a few simple steps to stay safe, like avoid hiking until two hours after sunrise, keeping pets inside at night and making sure outside pets and livestock are in cages with roofs.
PEEC would like to thank James Brooks, of Yukon Wildlife Studio, for his help with this program. Brooks has been collecting and categorizing data about mountain lion encounters in Los Alamos on his website, yukonwildlifestudio.com, and was kind enough to tour Ken Logan before his talk, showing him the lay of the land in Los Alamos and places where sightings had been reported.
