Mountain Lion Sighting Confirmed

DES MOINES (AP) -- The Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a mountain lion sighting in Madison County.

The Des Moines Register reports a farmer's game camera caught an image of the mountain lion Oct. 13, about 10 miles north of Winterset.

DNR spokesman Kevin Baskins says the animal appears to be a 2- to 3-year-old male.

It's the first confirmed sighting of a mountain lion in Iowa since last October, when Des Moines police killed one in a city neighborhood.

The DNR says there have been 16 confirmed mountain lion sightings since 1994.

Those sightings will likely become even less common in the future because South Dakota, where many mountain lions apparently originate, is issuing more hunting permits to reduce the population of the animals.
