Cougar chase and capture
Biologist Ben Maletzke is part of Project CAT (Cougars and Teaching), a research team that monitors the movements of cougars over many years. Funded by Washington State Fish and Wildlife, field biologists use satellite telemetry to track the habitat and movement of cougars. Maletzke listens to the signal being transmitted from a cougar's collar. At far left is student Jamie French, 13, and volunteer Josh Uriarte.
