Hunt underway for mountain lion spotted in Rapid City

June 14, 2018

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A hunt is underway for a young mountain lion that has been spotted several times in a residential neighborhood in Rapid City.

The Rapid City Journal reports that sightings Monday and Tuesday have been confirmed through video recorded on household security cameras. John Kanta with South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks says there have been several other eyewitness sightings.

If the lion is captured, it will be euthanized because it has entered a residential area and could pose a threat to people. But Kanta says it’s rare for a lion to attack a human.
