Along with all other wild bird, reptile, and mammal species in Alaska, mountain lions are classified as game.
However, mountain lions may not be hunted nor trapped for fur.
Alaska’s endangered species law says that the state may provide protection to
any animal whose numbers may be in decline such that its continued existence is threatened.”
While this could apply to mountain lions, Alaska’s endangered species list does not list them.
In fact, mountain lions are rarely mentioned in any state law or regulation. The state has no law addressing ountain lion depredations or poaching.
