Third Mountain Lion Cub Found

Not just one, but two mountain lion cubs were caught Wednesday night in the Cache Creek area in Jackson.

 

The lions will join a third sibling and their mother, captured earlier, before being released between Lander and Rawlins within the next few days, Wyoming Game and Fish spokesman Mark Gocke said Thursday.

 

Wyoming Game and Fish staff members set live traps hoping to capture what was believed to be the sole member of the mountain lion family still on the loose. Finding two more was unexpected but not “entirely surprising,” Gocke said.

 

Wildlife officials had received sightings of a mother and two young lions.
