Missouri Confirms Sixth Mountain Lion Sighting
A spate of cougar sightings ticked up to six since November with a confirmed sighting in Oregon County. According to Area Wide News, the most recent sighting was confirmed from a tuft of hair left on a fence.
MDC Resource Scientist Jeff Beringer today released results of a DNA test on hair taken from a fence along Highway M, near the community of Rover. Beringer said Conservation Agent Jerry Elliott retrieved the hair after receiving a report from an area resident who saw the cougar run across the road.
