Hungry Cougars

Sue Shirley
One day many hungry cougars appeared on DCD's campus where they decided to go hunting for their favorite prey: squirrels, rabbits, porcupines, beavers, and deer. Each cougar's goal was to bring 50kg of food to its den so that they could survive in their habitat for another month. Among the healthy cougars there was also one that was injured, one that was blind, and one with 2 cubs. Was it better to collect a lot of squirrels or find one of the two deer before anyone else did? Was the carrying capacity of the habitat high enough to provide food for all? Ask your cougar.
