DEN LIFE: Observations of a Mountain Lion Kitten in Nebraska

October 23, 2019
A motion activated video camera was placed near a collared female mountain lion's two-week old kitten in Nebraska's Pine Ridge. Although mountain lions were part of Nebraska’s native fauna, they were extirpated by the end of the 19th century. Despite annual reports since the 1950s, no confirmed sighting was made in the state until the 1990s. In 1991 mountain lion tracks were found and shortly after, an adult mountain lion was shot by a hunter near Harrison, in Sioux County.
