Third Mountain Lion Cub Found
s were first reported feeding on mule deer carcasses in the residential area on Jan. 17.
The three cubs, a male and two females, are about 7 months old, based on their teeth, Gocke said. They are believed to all be from the same family, although Game and Fish biologists may conduct DNA tests for verification, he said.
Mountain lions in Wyoming usually stay with their mothers until they are about 14 to 15 months old, Gocke said.
After initial efforts to haze the animals out of the residential area failed, Game and Fish staff members tried to trap the cats Jan. 23. They caught the mother the first night and the first cub Jan. 26.
