Sorry I had thought that was a picture from the recent incident as it showed a large female and kitten.

The above link doesn't work for some reason. Here's a link to the King5 article with video. ~z

It was a coincidence that this picture was posted the same day as the attack north of Snoqualmie. These pictures were taken south of I-90 adjacent to our upper pasture on 2-15. It's a relatively rare event (once/year or so) to capture these animals on the cams and was a real treat to capture two. We photographed a young cat (still had some mottling on upper front legs) with no other cat in the image a few of years (Aug 21) ago, but am not sure of the relationship between these two. MC, which one do you think is the young one? Here's another shot:

I thought the one in back in the first post and in front on the second was the kitten, but I do not see spots on either.

I don't know where your placing your cams in your front yard or play ground but I run 15 trail cams out there and there's always cougars on them. Most times in one location I get 5 cougar pictures in a half year soak. There is a lot more out there than you think. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they are not there, especially since they are more nocturnal than not.

It was a subject of debate here - unresolved smile.gif We guesstimated this youngster (remnant mottling mentioned in previous post) to be ~9 months to a year old, possibly newly independent. We did not get an image of mom, and it is the only picture captured during daylight hours of the big cats over the years.

Juvenile cats nearly as big as mom here. Mom is leading. Notice the distinct black bands on the front legs of cats #2 & #3? ( and the picture in the previous post ) Multiple & distinct dark bands will be on the legs of juvenile cats

Nothing exciting happening in front of my cameras lately. Lots of elk, coyotes, bobcats & deer. Been fun documenting the elk this past fall and into the new year. Recognize most of them around our area. Shed hunters. Majority of the dominant bulls have lost their antlers. Satellite bulls still hanging on.

Notice the short legs? It's one of the ( not always ) abnormalities of Piebald Deer

This is so cool!! You never stop to amaze (and surprise) me with what you are able to capture on your cameras, BPG. Thanks so much for posting them. Eric

There was a piebald deer we observed showing up for several years on the 20+ acres my friends owned east of Redmond. It was always fun to see "Bessie".
