Kicked off my own #bigcatweek with a nearly 24 hour waiting game of trying to recapture one of our oldest (and smartest) females. Replacing tracking collars periodically ensures the pumas have the lightest, most modern technology and we get the best data possible. It’s not the easiest undertaking though, and she avoided capture with ease. Maybe next week!
