Mountain Lion Caught in Trap Near Taylor

Posted: Updated:

A mountain lion is dead after getting caught in a trap in Loup County.

Loup County resident Trevor Kraus says he was checking a coyote snare he had set in the Taylor area when he found the cat.

The 150 lb. male will be turned over Nebraska Game and Parks Commission biologists.

Mountain lions have been sighted in many parts of Nebraska, and some are known to live in the Pine Ridge region. Biologists say males often travel long distances in search of new territory.
