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.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
