Washington department of fish and wildlife has collared cougars in a study. Some of the cats travel hundreds of miles. Mostly young toms looking for open territory. They tend to travel their territory regularly, IIRC it is several square miles per cat. Can't remember right now how many but when I heard it I was amazed. They are awe inspiring animals, especially in the wild. You will never forget seeing one in person, no cages or fences.
You can't fix stupid....however ignorance can be cured through education!
