Hunt Underway For Mountain Lion Spotted In Rapid City

A hunt is underway for a young mountain lion that has been spotted several times in a residential neighborhood in Rapid City.

Sightings Monday and Tuesday have been confirmed through video recorded on household security cameras. John Kanta with South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks says there have been several other eyewitness sightings.

If the lion is captured, it will be euthanized because it has entered a residential area and could pose a threat to people. But Kanta says it's rare for a lion to attack a human.
