Kansas DWP Verifies Mountain Lion Sighting
The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks has verified another mountain lion photographed by trail camera. The current cougar was photographed in Nemaha County on December 7th, which brings the total verified mountain lion sightings to five in recent history. The Kansas City Star has the full story.
Biologist Matt Peek said the department heard about the photos last week. A staff biologist inspected the area where the photo was taken the next day to verify the landscape as pictured in the photo. Peek said the department is honoring the landowner’s wishes to remain anonymous and that the photos not be shared with others.
