Spring and summer are particularly vulnerable times for Colorado's wildlife. Bears come out of hibernation, while cougar kittens begin to hunt with their mothers. Mule deer and elk, including pregnant females, migrate to higher elevations. As more people spend time in wilderness areas, cougar-human/pet encounters are likely to increase. To live peaceable with our wild animals, we all need to learn more about their habits and habitats.
