Lion Hunting Behind Last Year’s Pace in SD

Mountain Lion


RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – The number of mountain lions being killed during this year’s hunting season in South Dakota is behind last year’s pace, and hunters might not reach the state-set quota of 100 lions.
Game, Fish and Parks Regional Wildlife Manager John Kanta tells KEVN-TV that 23 days into the season, 23 lions had been killed, compared with 28 at the same time last year.
The season ends on March 31st, and the one-lion-a-day pace will need to continue for the quota to be met. But only two lions have been killed in the Black Hills in the past 10 days.
