Mountain Lion killed south of Bismarck

A mountain lion has been killed south of Bismarck, but wildlife officials don't know if it's the same one spotted near an elementary school recently.

A mountain lion has been killed south of Bismarck, but wildlife officials don't know if it's the same one spotted near an elementary school recently.

A deer hunter shot an 85-pound female lion Friday. Last week, there were sighting of a cat near Prairie Rose Elementary school, prompting

school officials to keep students indoors, as a precaution. A chief with Game and Fish says it seems "likely" the lion is the one spotted near the school, but it's impossible to say for certain.
