Salt Lake City, UT –
This winter, writer and photographer Stephen Trimble came face to face with a cougar on the west side of the Salt Lake Valley. He writes about the experience in the current issue of The Wasatch Journal - and about a 12-year scientific research project involving 170 radio-collared cougars. Trimble talks with KUER's Jenny Brundin about the private land on the Valley's west side that makes for a healthy population of cougars and the deer they hunt.

Stephen Trimble's article "Wild In the City: A Cougar's View from the Oquirrhs" appeared in the Early Summer 2008 issue of Wasatch Journal. His new book, "Bargaining for Eden: The Fight for the Last Open Spaces in America", will appear in July.
