The December edition of National Geographic Magazine features an interesting article entitled ‘Ghost Cats,’ which highlights the evolution of the cougar and the state of the species today in North America, Panthera’s Teton Cougar Project and individual cougars studied through this project, and photos of wild cougars taken by Panthera’s Media Director and National Geographic photographer, Steve Winter. Among Winter's photos is a stunning image of a cougar set against the backdrop of Los Angeles’ Hollywood sign.
