Mountain Lion Spotted In Gillette Area

In August the Wyoming Game & Fish Department relocated this mountain lion from a Gillette to the Big Horns.

Gillette Game Warden Dustin Kirsch received a call that the lion was under the floor of a house that was under construction. Kirsch immediately responded along with Gillette Game Warden Jackie Otto and Wildlife Biologist Erika Peckham.

The young female mountain lion was tranquilized and loaded in the new live trap/trailer that was recently donated by the Gillette based Wyoming Sportsmen Group to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

The mountain lion was transported to the Sheridan Regional Game and Fish office where it was kept overnight for observation and then released the next day in the Bighorn Mountains.
