Mitragyna Speciosa


On February 3, puma project researcher Paul Houghtaling went looking for 25F again. In May 2012, 25F’s collar stopped sending GPS data, and we have been attempting to get her a new collar ever since. After many previous attempts to track down 25f, Paul went back to Wilder Ranch, 25F’s home turf, to try again. He was able to locate a deer kill that she had made in Wilder, and we successfully captured her last night.

The capture was quick and successful, and now 25F has a working collar again.  To see where 25F roams, check out her track with our puma tracker here.
