Cougars Par for Course in Scottsdale
Mountain lions are notoriously reclusive and a sighting, even for those of us that live in and recreate in cougar country, is rare. Given the nature of mountain lions, it's surprising to to see that a Scottsdale couple photographed a mother lion and her two cubs on the fourth hole of the Desert Mountain Golf Club's Cochise course. AZCentral.com has the story and the photos.
The Bormans have lived along the course - one of six private tracts surrounded by rugged Sonoran Desert - for six years. In that time, they said that they have seen all kinds of native wildlife: javelinas, bobcats, coyotes, diamondback rattlesnakes - but never mountain lions, until Monday.
