Pumas (Puma concolor) have more names than any other cat - puma, cougar, mountain lion, catamount, and Florida panther, among others. Don't run into the woods, nor off the bike path, in spring. Mama cats don't like anyone near their babies. It's their land; you're just take-out delivery. They prey on deer, elk, moose, horses, porcupines, and other spaced-out mammals.
