KIOWA RURAL TOWNSHIP, Kan. — The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism said it spotted a rare mountain lion on a trail camera located in southwestern Kansas on Sunday.
The department shared a photo on its Facebook page, saying the big cat was found on camera is Kiowa County, which is located southeast of Dodge City and west of Pratt, Kansas.
The department said in the photo the mountain lion is carrying a recently killed porcupine in its mouth.
“This photo follows three earlier confirmations (20 miles total apart) in the same area 2.5 months ago, which biologists assumed was the same cat headed south,” the department said on Facebook. “This is the first time multiple photos of a cat have been confirmed in the same area within a time frame that could indicate the presence of a resident lion.
