Project Cougar

Synopsis

A mother cougar is killed by a car on a highway that orphans three cougar cubs. The cubs are rescued and they are raised in captivity without contact with their human captures in the hope they can be released back in the wild. But will the cubs imprint on humans and will they be able to fend for themselves once on their own? Interviews and reenactments about cougar attacks reveal that young, adolescent cougars are the most likely age to fail in the wild on their own. Is this an experiment doomed for failure?

Animal handler, Mark Dumas, works with a young cougar on green screen set.
