Mountain lions are not uncommon. They tend to avoid people but will follow a lone hiker. One cat just sat there flicking it's tail as I howled like a coyote at it. It reluctantly ran away after I slowly started walking toward it.

In the winter of 1980, a black bear ran through my yard while I was drinking a cup of coffee one morning. Being half asleep and totaly suprised, I exclaimed to my wife "Hey! Whose dog is that!"

The area is inhabited by the most scrawniest, flea bitten, mangy mule deer I have ever seen in the west. They no doubt get run ragged by the coyotes and cats. We see them in the winter mostly when they come down to lower elevations to forage.

A suprise resident is the nocturnal Badger. They are evident by thier dens that are really expanded squirrl holes. They love to dine on the former inhabitants and dig right on in as an uninvited guest for dinner.

There are fox in the area, but they remain very shy and elusive. They dine on mice.

Beaver inhabit the length of Deep Creek. These were transplanted in years gone by and have resisted efforts at eradication. They are VERY destructive to the sycamore groves of Deep Creek and the dam building contributes to flash flooding.

Skunks and raccoons are also found along Deep Creek
