Bismarck, N.D. (AP) The state Game and Fish Department says two more mountain lions have been killed in McKenzie County, leaving three left before the season in that area ends.
The animals were killed over the weekend in Zone 1, an area of the North Dakota badlands south of Williston. It includes Billings, Bowman, Dunn, Golden Valley, McKenzie and Slope counties. The quota there is eight mountain lions during a season.
The rest of the state, in Zone 2, has no quota.
The Game and Fish Department says a female mountain lion about 2 years old was shot Saturday by Kevin Wanner of Belfield along the Little Missouri River south of Watford City. He and his wife were bow hunting, but he used a pistol to shoot the cougar.
Fecske said the other mountain lion killed was a male about 2 years old. It was shot Monday by Stacy Lehfeldt of Mandan, a Marine on leave who was hunting deer near the river east of Watford City.
