for our five species of current and historic wild felines: ocelots, jaguarundis, jaguars, mountain lions, and bobcats. Of particular concern is our mountain lion, also known as a cougar or puma. Here’s why:

The State of our Texas Mountain Lion

  • No protection/classified as nongame
  • No limit on hunting and trapping
  • No mandatory harvest reporting
  • No mandatory trap-check times
  • No population estimate
  • Yet classified as imperiled/threatened

Texas Native Cats is a coalition member of Texans for Mountain Lions, a group of landowners, biologists,  conservationists, and organizations that is working to improve the status and conservation of our state’s mountain lion.
