Kansas Game Wardens say a female mountain lion was found dead in Rooks County on Thursday.

The group immediately contacted the local game warden who responded to the scene.

One person from the group posted on social media the big cat appeared to have been shot multiple times with a shotgun. One of the cat’s paws was then sawed off .

The incident is under investigation.
