Welcome to Lion Country: America’s Big Cat Comeback

Call it the puma, panther, the catamount or cougar; whatever name you use for America's big cat, get ready to hear it a lot. Mountain lions once roamed the continent from sea to shining sea, but by the turn of the 20th century, they were almost completely wiped out. Now, for the first time in more than a century, their numbers are growing - and fast. It's a triumph for America's ecosystems, but can we learn to live with an apex predator in our backyard? It's a question most Americans have to face as the cats make their comeback: if you don't live in lion country now, you will soon.See the video and more info here:https://roaring.earth/lion-countryQuestions, comments or future episode ideas: podcast@roaring.earth Learn more about your ad choices.
