Wildlife officials say hunters are nearing the early season mountain lion quota in southwest North Dakota, with the killing of the seventh lion late last week near the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
While some reports of a possible mountain lion in the Jamestown area have been investigated by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, it appears most sightings that may have occurred in the last weeks have gone unreported, according to Rodd Compson, assistant wildlife biologist with Game and Fish in Jamestown.
MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — Authorities believe a mountain lion is responsible for the killing of sheep at a U.S. Department of Agriculture research center south of Mandan, but they have been unable to turn up any sign of a cougar.
The killings began about two weeks ago and at least eight sheep are dead, said Phil Mastrangelo, director of USDA’s Wildlife Services division in North Dakota.
Despite a rise in cougar sightings on the Fort Berthold Reservation, hunters have had limited success killing the cats since a special hunting season was launched three years ago, a wildlife official said.
Hunters killed two of the reclusive mountain lions on the reservation in December, the only ones since the season began in September, said Fred Poitra, game and fish director for Three Affiliated Tribes.
