2 more mountain lions killed in N.D. badlands

Bismarck, N.D. (AP) North Dakota’s wildlife division chief says deer hunters killed two mountain lions in the badlands over the weekend.
 
Randy Kreil (KRYL) says that leaves one cat left to fill the quota of eight killed in Zone 1, which includes the badlands. The mountain lion season then will end in that part of the state.
 
Kreil says he has few details of the weekend cougar killings. He says a game warden in Watford City got a call Saturday from two deer hunters who reported they each shot a cougar.
 
Kreil says the two mountain lions apparently were traveling together in the badlands.
 
No mountain lions have been killed yet this season in Zone 2, which covers the rest of the state and has no quota.
