GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A mountain lion spotted in a Gillette neighborhood has been killed.

Wyoming Game and Fish officials say the 2-year-old female cat was shot Tuesday to protect the public.

The Gillette News Record (http://bit.ly/xIx4PB ) reported that some people reported seeing the cat on Monday but officers weren’t able to find where it was living until the following day.

Game warden Irah Leonetti said the cat was living under a trailer in an area just east of an industrial park and had been feeding on some deer.

The last time he can remember a mountain lion being shot in the city was in 2008.
