Cougars


I would like to tell you information about the North Cascades cougars. Now cougars are one of the animals in the North Cascades, but there is one problem about the cougars. Life in the wild is dangerous for a cougar. Did you know that a cougar could run up to 125 to 175 square miles, think about it? Sometimes in American folklore they say it is the ghost walker, ghost of the wilderness. In the North Cascade, a cougar sometimes comes with a mate and only for mating. When babies are born they are born blind and the little cougars stay inside a cave until they are older. When they are in the cave the mother helps the babies to learn how to hunt and stay alive in the wild. For your safety when you are in the north Cascade National Park and you see or approach a cougar you must follow these rules if you do not want a cougar to get too close to you. Here are the rules you need to follow: never approach a cougar or if you see one then pick up your kids if you are hiking with any and don’t ever run from one. Never go hiking alone and if you see a cougar then the best thing to do is pick up rocks and begin throwing them.

Me and Jose.E wanted to choose cougars or wolverines in our group. I am not happy about the bobcat name. I wish we were cougars because they are cool.

I heard a way you can defend yourself from a cougar... if you have a jacket, put it up high in the air and the cougar will go away.
