Premiered during BIG CAT WEEK December 11, 2011 on Nat Geo Wild. Returns to broadcast April 9, 2012.
Naturalist Casey Anderson sets out to track one of North America’s most elusive ghosts: the mountain lion. Casey’s longtime friend and cat expert Tyler Johnerson is on hand to help him in his quest to witness “the ghost of the Rockies.” Armed with specialized camera technology, they hope to capture never-before-seen footage of mountain lions and their cubs living in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem. A nearly impossible challenge given that this formidable and cunning predator is capable of jumping vertically nearly 20 feet in a single leap.
