Just got back from a walk in JTNP. I guess I must admit my interest in scat. I suspect that the roundish grey objects pictured age old droppings of a mountain lion. The brownish stuff is probably coyote droppings.
I was walking in an area about 3/4 of a mile above Lost Horse Wall in a highly frequented area and was noting that there was lots of tufts of a kind of grass that mountain sheep tend to like which had not been grazed. I figured that was due to the high level of human visitation. Then as was walking on ground that would take prints. There I saw mountain lion prints going straight as a arrow for several yards. The prints showed round chubby toe prints and a nice back pad. They were not real fresh, but fresh enough to make me nervous. Couldn't get a decent picture.Seeing the prints is what made me alert to the droppings. They also made me think that the bighorns had more than one reason not to frequent the area.
