Mountain Lion Photo Proves Hunch

Associated Press - September 27, 2015 7:49 am

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.

A southern Kansas man says a photo taken on a trail camera last week proves his suspicion that a mountain lion lives on his property.

Danny Holden was cutting up sand near a creek bottom on his Sumner County property on Wednesday when he noticed the image of a large mountain lion on the camera.

The 51-year-old told The Wichita Eagle he had waited a long time for the photo after thinking for several years a mountain lion was living there.

But wildlife biologist Matt Peek with the state wildlife department says it’s more likely that the mountain lion was just passing through from somewhere else on his search for other mountain lions.

He says no evidence has been found of lions are reproducing in the state.
