Trail Cam Catches Rare Photo of 8 Cougars on Game Trail
Washington resident Brad Thomas captured a rare event on his trail cam, a total of 8 mountain lions. The image has been verified as authentic by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in Wenatchee. The Seattle Times has the complete story.
They don't exactly hunt in packs, don't travel in herds and aren't typically thought of as communal beings. The image of the mountain lion as a stealthy, solitary beast is woven into the fabric of the American West.
And yet there they were on a game trail in Eastern Washington — eight creatures famous for being loners, all huddled together as if attending some big-cat block party.
