THE BEAST IN THE GARDEN
 

Almost a decade has passed since The Beast in the Garden was first published, yet the story it tells of a community struggling to coexist with cougars, and of lessons learned from a tragic death is more timely than ever.


Cougars (aka mountain lions, pumas, panthers) are returning to places they have not been for a century or more. This is exciting news, but it means that a growing number of Americans must learn to live with these potentially dangerous predators.


Read about this new state of affairs in my New York Times op-ed, “The Cougar Behind Your Trash Can.”
