Cougar town -

Yellowstone also has cougars, which have sadly had a tough time over the years. At the beginning of the 20th century, an effort was made to get rid of these felines across America. Many were killed, but some managed to survive in the west of the country, and these animals are the ancestors of those we see in Yellowstone today.
