A hunter’s trail cam has captured images of the fourth confirmed mountain lion sighting in Kansas.
From this story in the Wichita Eagle:
A north-central Kansas archery deer hunter has added to the proof that mountain lions are roaming Kansas. Caleb Mahin, of rural Courtland, found several images of what appears to be a mountain lion on a remote-controlled camera he had placed near the Republican River in Republic County.
_Matt Peek, Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, examined the photos and thinks they show the fourth confirmed mountain lion in Kansas in the past three years. The first was shot near Medicine Lodge in 2007. Before that it had been more than 100 years since a wild mountain lion had been confirmed in the state. Another was photographed by a hunter last fall. The third confirmation came when a radio-collared cat wandered into Kansas from Colorado this spring.
