Legend of Cougar Canyon
The beautiful and desolate Navajo tribal lands of the desert Southwest are among the wildest, most rugged areas in the U.S. Many legends haunt the windswept mesas and many creatures stalk the lonely canyons. The native people tell the tale of Cougar Canyon, where danger and wonder walk hand in hand. When a goat wanders away from the herd, two young boys must go alone to seek her in the haunted canyon. What they find, and what finds them, is an adventure into danger in this story for all ages.
“Legend of Cougar Canyon” offers a realistic view of the animal kingdom up close. Cougar Canyon is the film’s focus because of the cougar that lives in it; the canyon is the same place the Navajo tribe used to dwell.
This documentary features the cougar attempting to get to sheep for food. It attacks a young man, but the young man escapes unharmed.
This film is awarded our Dove Seal for ages twelve plus, due to the cougar attacking other animals for food. Also, a wolf and hawk attack for food. This is nature filmed in its true environment.
