Secretive, elusive, graceful, a creature of myths and rumors, and capable of killing people, cougars stir our imagination, curiosity, and fear. Dr. James Halfpenny talks about cougar ecology and lifestyle, and past encounters with humans. A noted carnivore ecologist and founder of the Human/Lion Interaction Project, Jim has investigated and analyzed over 500 interactions between people and cougars. Learn more about these amazing cats and how they have taken up residence in many states from which they were extirpated, including our own Show-Me State.
