    We think of them as solitary but I think there is a bunch of circumstances where they are know to hang out together, I would not see multiple cougars as uncommon.

    When I was at 7th Infantry Division (LIGHT) at FT ORD, we were on a field exercise on the West Coast (probably FT Hunter-Liggett) and we had multiple Cougars probing the perimeter of my TOW Platoon at night. We only had a few NVGs (early 80s) and kept an eye on them. No one was inured through the course of the night - Cougar or Soldier - but for once I had no issue with Soldiers falling asleep on "duty" during the night training exercise.

    My mom has seen daylight photos of a cougar on the west side of the island where I grew up, which means they now range over the whole place. Maybe one corner that's an undeveloped park separated from the rest by a couple miles of suburbs would be unlikely, but it's reasonable to assume you could be tracked anywhere else.

    When I was a kid, kids could go out in the woods in small groups or even alone and had nothing to worry about. Biggest predators were coyotes, and the only things that needed to worry about them were house cats out at night.

    Times change.
