Abstract:

"The Cougar Almanac is a thorough study of one of the most misunderstood of all the big cats also known as pumas, mountain lions, and panthers. Cougars are not only one of the last of North America's large predators, but also, with the exception of wolves, the most controversial. Elusive and shrouded in myth, the cougar is as fascinating as it is difficult to observe. This book is the most comprehensive natural history of the cougar ever written, exploring distribution, behavior, biology, habitat, and conservation, with examinations of the near extinct Florida panther, and the Eastern cougar, which was thought to have been hunted to extinction long ago. As human development pushes deeper into the wilderness, a growing concern about clashes with cougars has become frighteningly real. What will become of our big cat? Only education will offer hope of understanding how humans and wild animals can coexist in an increasingly shared habitat. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
