Enjoy our precious photo of the day of a female cougar known as F59 monitored through Panthera’s Teton Cougar Project! F59 was one of five kittens born to F51 in her first litter and serves as a living legacy to her mother, who was recently killed by a local male cougar while defending her newest two kittens. Yesterday, our scientists reported that these two 7 month old kittens are alive and traveling together. Stay tuned for news on these kittens and other cougars monitored through the TCP. See incredible video footage and read about the incredible life and legacy of F51
