Mountain Lion Sign Found In Jackson

Cats can be pretty evasive sometimes – especially mountain lions who try to avoid contact with people.  As a result, police responding to the report of a mountain lion on Martin Lane in Jackson Monday were unable to locate the big cat.  Neither were officers of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.  However, investigation of another report of the cat this morning yielded evidence of its presence in the area.  Wyoming Game and Fish personnel are working to capture and remove the mountain lion from the area. Until the mountain lion can be removed, Jackson Police Lieutenant Cole Nethercott says the pathway in the area from the bridge at South Highway 89 to the intersection with Gregory Lane will be closed as a precaution. Police officers will escort school children through the area after school this afternoon but there will be a full closure of the pathway after that.  Students and others will have to find another route to and from school until the lion is caught. Should residents in the area be challenged by the lion, experts say they should make noise and make themselves look as fearsome as possible since lions are relatively easily intimidated.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
