A ranger got an up close look at wildlife Wednesday morning at the Capulin Volcano National Monument in northeastern New Mexico. 

Ranger Brent was on his morning routine when he came across a mountain lion. 

While Capulin Volcano is within their range, it’s extremely rare to see a mountain lion there. 

They’ve only been spotted twice this year.
