|According to the US Fish and Wildlife Service,
mountain lions have the widest distribution of any native mammal in the
western hemisphere. They once ranged from northern British Columbia to southern
Chile and from coast to coast.
Today, their North American range has been reduced to the western United States and Canada. There is a small population of endangered Florida panthers in south Florida.
According to Audubon magazine, scientists confirmed a 1994 sighting of a female cougar with two kittens in Vermont and the discovery of cougar hair and scat in Massachusetts in 1997.
