Edit protect[edit]

Could an admin please add the following to the start of the history section.

Cat Creek reportedly received it's name after a cowboy allegedly lassoed a Mountain lion.[1] Darkness Shines (talk) 14:35, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

It's already there. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 15:37, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I had not noticed it. Darkness Shines (talk) 15:50, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Note on mountain lions[edit]

The area is identified in: Land Health Evaluation Report Jerry Creek Allotment Bureau of Land Management Butte Field Office. The note specifically says:"Numerous wildlife species and/or their habitats can be found in the allotment including but not limited to elk, mule deer, moose, bighorn sheep, red fox, black bear, coyote, bobcat, mountain lion, tailed frog, Columbia spotted frog, pine marten, long-tailed and short-tailed weasels, porcupine, badger, red squirrel, flying squirrel, mountain cottontail, snowshoe hare, white-tailed jackrabbit, ground squirrels and other small mammals."

The same applies to virtually anywhere in the western US. Please don't feed the trolls: a look through the edit filter indicates that attempts are still being made to vandalize this page by IPs and sockpuppet accoutns. Acroterion (talk) 14:19, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Note: the first comment was directly related to an admin inquiry about finding a reliable source for a mention of the wildlife in the area. FWiW, this is no way validating any aspect of the ongoing campaign to introduce a hoax about African lions in the area. Bzuk (talk) 14:30, 15 October 2012 (UTC).

Understood, thanks for clarifying and finding for the cite. Acroterion (talk) 14:41, 15 October 2012 (UTC)


Link to greasewood, in this geographic range, probably should be to Sarcobatus. LCS check (talk) 20:10, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, thanks for catching that! - The Bushranger One ping only 23:17, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
