PIERRE (AP) -- South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed into law a measure allowing the use of dogs for mountain lion hunting.

The bill also allows a leashed dog to be used to track and retrieve any big game animal that is wounded or presumed dead.

Hounds had not been used for mountain lion hunting since the state Game, Fish and Parks Commission first set a season in 2005, but the commission this year allowed the limited use of dogs for lion hunting in Custer State Park. The bill signed by the governor says dogs may be used for lion hunting as provided by rules passed by the commission.
