Kapowsin

I've had my doubts about wolves in Kapowsin but after having this goat show up on a camera quite a few miles from the park I guess anything is possible.

Very cool! I saw a nanny and kid in the road on the 24 road this past winter. I had heard rumors before as well, but didnt completely believe it until I saw it!

I have seen a handful of goats in there over the years...One winter there were 2 goats on the 62 road when it was timbered...and closer to the 6 road than the 5....would not have believed they would be that low if I did not see them

Friend got a trail cam pic of probably that same collared cougar off the mainline bridge gate side mile __.  One thing I would wish is that they would allow us to predator hunt at night.  Lots of bobcat and coyotes.  Probably cougar as well just don't see them often at all.

Yes , it's fairly low pointing down into that spot . This last spring we found a spot that looked like it may be a marking spot for cats . We put in the camera and got 3 cats . One cougar and 2 bobcats . I think we have about a 10 videos of the cougar coming in .

This cougar was collard Jan. 2016 south of the Greenwater fire station by the Muckleshoot tribe . The bio figured he was 2 1/2 years old when they collard him . I'm with you on the night hunting , lots of predators .

If this is true, did the natives transplant the cat in a different location or did it just make its way over to kapowsin?

They didn't transplant it , when they collard it the bio felt it was a young male looking for it's own territory , I guess he found it in Kapowsin . The collar failed with-in the first month so they lost track of this cats location pretty quick . After talking to the Muckleshoot bio a couple times it would be nice if the WDFW would take the same approach to predator management as the tribe .

Thanks for the info, I was curious.  Predator management would have been to kill that cat!!  :chuckle:

The top predator of ungulates in that area has two legs and has almost exclusive hunting rights.
