    I was reminded yesterday of this experience I had in Waterton Lakes National Park 3 years ago today. I was on Red Rock Parkway when I noticed a bear way off in the distance, on the golf course. I had a look through the 500mm lens to see what it was up to, and as I looked, something incredible happened.. A Cougar walked into the frame! As you can see, the bear and cougar were pretty close, but neither one reacted to the other! I have to say I was pretty glad there was a river canyon between me and that big kitty! Not the best of pics because of the distance (they are heavily cropped), but there are more on Flickr at https://www.flickr.com/photos/rockymtnchick/sets/72157633990744051

    Cougars are common but elusive residents of Waterton Lakes National Park. We were surprised to find this remote wildlife camera image with four cougars in the shot (a mother likely putting up with her three teenagers before they branch out on their own). #WildlifeWednesday

    Bears are largely vegetarian and in this region feed mainly on plant roots and hoofed mammals such as deer and elk in the spring. This black bear, captured by one of our remote cameras as part of a wildlife movement project, may have stolen its deer carcass from a cougar.

    After a warm, dry spring (and the hard work of our trail crew), most of the park's trails are in good shape as we head into summer. Be safe and "bear aware". Happy hiking!
