SD Hunters Kill Two Mountain Lions Saturday
RAPID CITY, SD -

Hunters have killed eight Black Hills mountain lions so far this hunting season, including two Saturday.

Lion season started six days earlier this year than last. An official with the state Game, Fish & Parks in Rapid City says that it's hard to tell if the 100-lion quota will be met.

Mike Kintigh, regional supervisor for the GF&P, says that he'd expected Saturday's number to be higher because the lions are easier to track after snowfall settles.

The maximum allowed number of lions killed this season is 100, or 70 females, whichever happens first. Kintigh says hunters have a long way to go.

In addition to the lions killed Saturday, four were killed Wednesday, and one apiece Thursday and Friday.
