Wildcats at El Remanso

Two very big eyes stared at Walter in the dark as he shone his flashlight up the trail on his way out from working at El Remanso. Not knowing who -or what- those eyes belonged to, he dashed to his motorcycle for better light, and the beam hit the right spot just in time to see a large puma dart into the jungle night! Although no wildcat has ever been reported to attack a human in Costa Rica, Walter confesses to have been quite frightened when he saw it last night. Still, he knows he has been very fortunate to see this magnificent rainforest predator.
