40th Confirmed Sighting of a Mountain Lion in Missouri

The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) has announced the 40th confirmed sighting of a mountain lion in that state since 1994. The confirmation is based on an image of the lion recorded on June 29th by a trail camera in Pulaski County.

According to MDC's Mountain Lion Response Team, evidence indicates the mountain lions being spotted are most likely from states to the west and are passing through Missouri in search of mates or territory.
