On the other hand, on any particular day, you only have about one chance in a thousand of having one within a mile of you (more math), and they don't like to be seen by humans, so sightings are rare.

Since there are six roaming any particular area, that allows for breeding.

I don't know why the numbers don't rise, except here one gets hit by a car or truck about once every 5 years.

That and the occasional gunshot must keep them in check.
You will never have a dense population of pumas, regardless of how bountiful their prey is. Males will kill the cubs of other males whenever they find them.

You are right, of course, and I should have known that,
simply by knowing normal behavior of cats of any kind.
(Some exhibit that behavior more than others, but all
cats have some "anti-competitive" instinct.)

Back in 1979 I worked as a cook at Fountainhead Resort on lake Eufaula, Oklahoma. After we got off work, around midnight, we would sometimes go jogging around the state park. One summer night a few coworkers and I were jogging a loop about 2 miles. We were almost back to the resort, about 1/2 mile, when we heard the most blood curdling screen I've ever heard! The screen was way to loud to be a bobcat, it sounded just like the cat that Mercury used in there ads. Needless to say I never ran so fast in my life!

The next night we told the park rangers of our experience, they told us one ranger had seen a cougar at the park, and park guests had reported them also. My father was a land surveyor and we often seen big cat tracks in soft soil while out working. Also around lake Eufaula, folks are warned about leaving their pets out at night because of cougars. But every time someone reports seeing a cougar/mountain lion the Oklahoma Dept of Wildlife will say, we don't have mountain lions in Oklahoma, and we are just seeing mountain lions traveling through from Texas. Why is the OK department of wildlife denying we don't have have mountains lions. And if they are just traveling through Oklahoma, then where the heck are they going?

Going? To Arkansas, so our Game and Fish can also deny they are here

No one has mentioned the worst monster found in Fouke which was well known, documented, captured, and recently died in a cage. Tony Alamo
