2nd mountain lion killed in western ND

Bismarck, N.D. (AP) – A second mountain lion has been killed
this fall in western North Dakota.

State Game and Fish Department biologist Stephanie Tucker says
the cat was killed Saturday by a hunter in Billings County who was
looking for elk.

The mountain lion season will close in the western part of the
state when the quota of eight cats are killed. The rest of the
state has no limit.

The season runs through March. The first cougar killed was
reported last month, east of Watford City.

Tucker said the mountain lion killed Saturday was a 133-pound
male cat ranging in age from a year to 21/2 years old.
