Mountain Lion in Gothic

My neighbor Alison Brody, a biology Professor from the University of Vermont and long-time RMBL researcher, took this photo the other day from her cabin window.  The lion was less than 75 m from our cabin!

We've always known that mountain lions were potential marmot predators and in some years we find a deer-killed mountain lion, or a fresh track around Gothic.  But we've never seen them.  This is the best sighting of a lion in Gothic in recent history!
