For those of you who have visited the Beartooth Nature Center you'll surely know of LEWIS, the mountain lion. He has been living there for a long time and sadly he was found dead today, quite unexpectedly. Perhaps the loss of HELEN some months ago had something to do with that. He was a much loved member of the BNC family and will be missed, especially by Don, his friend and caretaker for his entire life.
For everyone who has never been to the nature center in Red Lodge, MT, you must go there, it is a wonderful facility. The bears are still in hibernation altho the young male did come out for a few minutes before going back into his winter den. They have loads of different animals and birds and if you go in the summer you will see an amazing array of flowers and beautiful grounds.
