Mountain Lion Hunting Legalized in Nebraska


Mountain lion hunting will be allowed across most of Nebraska next year under new regulations approved by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

In 2004, a mountain lion was discovered in a tree at a South Sioux City home.

The animal was killed out of fears it might injure someone.

These new regulations will allow a slight to moderate reduction in northwest Nebraska's cougar population.

It also would permit year-round mountain lion hunting across most of the state beginning in 2014.
