Re: Mountain Lion shot in City limits

Some friends of the family live in Dickinson (sp?) and said it was about 200-300 yards from their back door... might be another cat, but they sent the scanned copy of the paper with the story.

Didn't click the link because I'm at work.

Re: Mountain Lion shot in City limits

We can't hunt cougars with hounds in Oregon since the greenies were able ban hound hunting for bears & Mt. Lions about 10 or 12 years ago. Their population has exploded and have decimated our deer and are working on the elk now. .280fan must not have many or any cougars in his area. Nobody in my neck of the woods would think it's a shame to kill one, let alone inside city limits.

Re: Mountain Lion shot in City limits

We started getting cat's here along the Iowa -South Dakota border some ten years ago.

They like to follow river and stream drainages in search of a home range after being booted out

by mature adult's, so I've been told anyway. SD GFP collared one in the Black Hills, it was later

killed by a train in Oklahoma. Quite a hike.

Re: Mountain Lion shot in City limits

The part of the story that concerned me the most was that they got within 15yds. to shoot it with a shotgun. Why would the cat let them get that close?
People are spun up around here about it. I reply why? People in Bismarck drive like complete idiots. I would be more worried about being run down by a car than taken by a lion.
