The interactive map below displays cougar confirmations currently in our database. The markers on the map represent confirmations by county (or Canadian equivalent) for areas outside of the known cougar range. At small map scales the markers are clustered, but as you zoom in the markers will center on the county. When clicked, clusters expand to individual confirmations.
Scroll down past the map to view summaries from the Cougar Network. We offer the "big picture" as well as define what constitutes a confirmation. Each confirmation has been extensively researched from its source (media, first-hand interviews, video/photo evidence, etc.). Note: it is possible that some of the confirmations could represent the same animal at different times and locations.
