The Eastern Puma: A Management Failure!

In an unreleased 1995 paper, 2 New England wildlife biologists question the current distribution & actual status of native eastern pumas. they consider current management practices & research data by wildlife officials to be insufficient in order to address the “Forest Ghost” true identity status. they recommend the USF&WS assume leadership responsibilities in the controversy & misunderstandings between wildlife professionals & independent researchers, saying the agency should allow experienced and veteran lay researchers to have more field study authority since the majority of evidence collected by them over the last 50 years have been proven to substantiate a native puma residency & sign.
