Not to many actually see cougars, count that as one of the great moments you will be able to record in your memory.Kevin D said:The fact that you observed 2 cats there makes it more likely they will stick around. The reason is that it is almost certain that at least one if not both of the cats is a youngster. Adult lions don't hang out with each other except when they are mating....and then it would only be for 3 or 4 days every couple of years. So odds are what you seen was a family group......and they generally don't travel too far.
In Utah, killing kittens and or females with kittens is illegal. So even if you found somebody with a tag, they aren't likely to be legal animals for harvest. My advise would be to just watch and observe, enjoy the moment.
