Mountain Lion Killed In Sheridan

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — The Sheridan Police Department killed a mountain lion found in a resident’s backyard over the weekend.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department approved shooting the lion on Sunday for safety reasons.

The Sheridan Press (http://bit.ly/vxt3um) reports that game managers determined that any attempt to immobilize and relocate the animal would have resulted in increased danger to the public.

The agency says the 3-year-old male mountain lion weighed about 115 pounds and appeared to be in good physical condition.

Game and Fish spokesman Warren Mischke says the agency in 2010 euthanized one mountain lion within Sheridan city limits and tranquilized and moved another.
