South Dakota teen kills mountain lion that attacked animals

Each year, Washington state reportedly allows 250 cougars to be hunted and killed in 50 designated zones.

CUSTER, S.D. — A South Dakota teenager has killed a mountain lion that attacked several animals on his family’s property in the southwest part of the state.

The Rapid City Journal reports the mountain lion killed a goat, duck, cat and chicken on the property in Custer on Sept. 20.

The teen’s mother, Lila Streff, owns Black Hills Goat Dairy and has been milking goats for about a decade. This was the first time she’d lost an animal to a mountain lion. She reported the incident to the state Game, Fish & Parks Department.

Her 14-year-old son, Dalton Streff, took shelter in a children’s playhouse in the backyard, armed with a rifle in anticipation of the animal’s return. He was able to kill the 70-pound mountain lion when it returned.
