How many mountain lions are expected to be in the United States?

    There are an estimated 30,000 mountain lions in the Western U.S., and less than 100 Florida panthers, making the species critically endangered. Mountain lions once populated the entire country, but by the 20th century they were entirely wiped out from the East and the Midwest (with the small group in Florida the remaining exception). Biologists believe, though, that the mountain lion may be ready for a rebound, thanks to the fact that the whitetail deer population has redoubled in places the mountain lion once inhabited.

    Yes, mountain lions might be back on the rise. There were four sightings in southern Indiana last May.
