Tracking Bobtail Cat

Siobhan Darlington

Bobtail is a six year old female cougar and study animal on the Southern BC Cougar Project. We have been monitoring her behaviour and tracking her locations every 2 hours since December 2019 and learned that she eats a diet of moose and mule deer, and prefers steep, mountainous terrain away from roads and people. She weighs 120 lbs and she has one of the largest territory sizes on the study at 1,030 km2. This image was taken after replacing her collar battery in January 2021.
