Are there mountain lions in the Franklin Mountains

I read an article in TX Highways that said there were. I was stationed at Fort Bliss in 1981 and drove a lot over the trans mountain pass, but never saw any. I hope there are

Default Yes, there are...

When I lived in El Paso I used to see them around the Horizon area up in the hills there, but that was back about '79-80. I think recently someone had some Bobcats visit them near Rim road.

A very few -- unfortunately for the wild life -- the extreme urban sprawl and building spree going on here is wiping them out.

porcupines, jackrabbits, and skunks live in the arroyos and drainage canals. lots of wildlife here if you look. roadrunners are my favorites--craaaazy looking birds!
