Stories of mountain lions trapped in the valley have been making their way on to social media over the last month. According to District Wildlife Manager Jeremiah Johnson their has been only one female mountain lion captured. That happened on Lascar Road with a subsequent capture of a pair of cubs belonging to the mother.

Prior to February 7, a ram belonging to Eric and Jennifer Parker was killed by a mountain lion at their Lascar Road home. A wildlife trap was set and, on February 7, netted a female mountain lion.

Johnson indicated that statewide policy is a mountain lion that has killed livestock must be put down because that behavior is impossible to reverse. Before the demise of the lion he made a trip to Rye Elementary School to provide an up-close and personal look at the captured animal by students at Rye Elementary. In addition to the students at the school, four of the Parker’s seven children were able to view the captured cat.
