Black Hills mountain lion season ends with 41 lions killed

RAPID CITY (AP) -- Wildlife officials in South Dakota report that the mountain lion hunting season in the Black Hills Fire Protection District has ended with 41 lions killed.

RAPID CITY (AP) - Wildlife officials in South Dakota report that the mountain lion hunting season in the Black Hills Fire Protection District has ended with 41 lions killed.

A report from the state Department of Game, Fish and Parks shows 25 of the lions killed during the season that ended Thursday were females.

Game, Fish and Parks regional supervisor Mike Kintigh tells KOTA-TV that this season's results are standard.

The station reports the department's goal is to manage about 200 lions in the Black Hills district. Kintigh says the results should help maintain the population level even though the season's 60-lion limit was not met.

The season began the day after Christmas. The mountain lion season outside of the Black Hills district runs year-round.
