Mountain Lion

Mountain lion study on Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge. Mountain lion was immobilized and a collar was put on the cat. The cat recovers and soon continues on its way. The collars will record a lion’s location every 5 hours, and drop off in one year. Researchers will then retrieve the collars and use the information to learn more about mountain lion movements and habitat use.
