Swan Valley Connections, a non-profit organization situated in Montana's scenic Swan Valley, captured this rare scene on camera. According to the organization's social media post: It's not often that we see a mountain lion with four healthy, dispersing-aged (~18 mo. old) kittens. These large cats have average territories of about 100 square miles, but their range is really driven by terrain and prey. In our area, average ranges are smaller, and these territories restrict even more in the winter, as our ungulates gather down on the valley bottom and travel around much less.
