Study To Look At Mt. Lions' Diet
May 3, 2009, 7:34 AM
A study of mountain lions in the Black Hills this summer will look at their diet.
Tom Kirschenmann in the Game, Fish and Parks Department says wildlife managers want to know more about what the lions prey on, and in particular if that includes big horn sheep. The GF&P notes a decline in the population of big horn sheep but doesn't know if they are being killed by lions.
Kirschenmann said the department gets a lot of information from the 75 to 80 mountain lions that have been caught and now carry radio collars that track their movements.
The GF&P estimates the lion population in the Black Hills at 250 - give or take 30.
