North Dakota Lion Science

With such a small, new mountain lion population, there hasn't been much research conducted in the state of North Dakota.

There has, however, been some research conducted by the state. A multi-year study was conducted by North Dakota Game and Fish along with South Dakota State University. Together, they surveyed the mountain lion population within two zones: the Badlands of North Dakota and everywhere else within North Dakota. Its objectives were to evaluate survival, dispersal, density, and the effects of harvest on mountain lions in North Dakota.
