Product Description

This skull was prepared from a male cougar (Puma concolor) accidentally snared on a legal trap line near Turtle Mountain in southwestern Manitoba in 2011. It weighed over 65 kg and was more than 2 m long from nose to tip of the tail. Cougars are rare but regular in Manitoba with no clear evidence of a breeding population. Manitoba individuals wander into the province from the Black Hills in North Dakota or Saskatchewan.
