Young Black Hills Cougar Now In Minnesota

December 23, 2004, 6:22 AM


Game and Fish Department officials say a young male cougar spotted in eastern North Dakota is now in northwestern Minnesota.

Wildlife officials have been tracking the animal through a radio collar attached late last winter in South Dakota.

North Dakota biologist Jacquie Ermer says the collar sent off a signal near Karlstad, Minnesota or about 40 miles into that state. It's about 70 miles northeast of Grand Forks.

Ermer says the mountain lion has moved nearly 50 miles in the past week. She says Minnesota officials have been contacted. The lion has traveled some 450 miles since South Dakota State University researchers attached its collar.

The Game and Fish Department says 58 mountain lion sightings have been reported in North Dakota this year.

A Fargo veterinarian said a horse near Moorhead had what appeared to be claw marks and might have been attacked by a big cat earlier this week. The marks were not deep.
