Missouri Man Spots Mountain Lion With Trail Camera

unfortuneately the state has been denying their existence until '94 when the 1 was killed. trust me, their is a larger population than they want to admit.....we've been seein them for 10 years. in some areas i do believe their is more than 1 in the area.

we know of 2 mt. lions where we were hunting that were killed, and both of them had collars on them.....needless to say the state denied their existence. this was about 5 or 10 years ago.

Cool, did you get some evidence of this such as photographs or something?

it was the neighbor to my great grandparents. they had some goats that kept coming up missing and thought the coyotes were getting to them. long story short, they ended up solving their problem but not without killing these mtn lions with collars. i personally did not see them, but this was the talk of the town for quite some time. i believe it was a year earlier when we were down their hunting, my dad spotted one at 30 yards going through some brush, and was telling folks, but everyone was in disbelief.
