    We have coyotes and foxes but I think that's as "large" as we're going to get in the predator department, unless you count Humans.

    There has been periodic discussions about allowing a a limited deer hunt in Rock Creek but so far it has only been limited to NPS sharp-shooters who give the meat to homeless shelters.  Most recently, animal lovers tried to stop this via lawsuit back in March and failed.

      cougars too. I keep saying I should start a web site and solicit donations, start lobying. Isn't that how it's done? I actually went bouldering there once forty years ago so I'm intimately familiar with all aspects of the wildlife ecology of the park. Yes that's snark.
