Officials investigating poached mountain lion near Pocatello


Share This

POCATELLO — The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is seeking information regarding the poaching of an adult female mountain lion on Scout Mountain south of Pocatello.

A person found the dead lion off the Lead Draw-Crestline Connector Trail in Big Game Management Unit 70 and reported it to Fish and Game on March 22. Since the female lion quota had been met in this unit in early February, this lion was shot during a closed season.

If anyone has any information about this case, they can contact Citizens Against Poaching at 1-800-632-5999 or Senior Conservation Officer Tyler Peterson at (208) 251-4515. Callers can remain anonymous and a reward is available for information that leads to an arrest.
