Kansas teens’ mountain lion sighting among 3 in 15 days

Associated Press - December 3, 2016 5:13 pm

Two Kansas teens got a big surprise, and video, when the hound they were using to hunt raccoons treed a mountain lion last month in Wabaunsee County.

Two Kansas teens got a big surprise, and video, when the hound they were using to hunt raccoons treed a mountain lion last month in Wabaunsee County.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2gViyyg) reports that the Thanksgiving night sighting was one of three documented within 15 days in a 60-mile area.

Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism biologist Matt Peek doesn’t know whether that part of Kansas has multiple animals or one that has been getting around.

A motion-activated trail camera on Fort Riley got a good image of a mountain lion on Nov. 9, though the authenticity of the image has not yet been officially confirmed. A similar camera got a photo in Shawnee County on Nov. 20.

Sometimes a single animal is photographed multiple times in different locations.
