Man shoots lion on porch
Published: Thursday, November 15th, 2012
A mountain lion met its fate on Carroll Creek Road, five miles south of Custer Nov. 5 after deciding to to a rest on the porch of a family’s home.
At about 8:30 p.m., a resident at the home heard a thumping noise on his front porch. When he opened the door, he looked to his left and saw a mountain lion lying on the porch, said John Kanta, Regional Wildlife Manager for South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks (GF&P). The man believes the thumping he heard was the lion’s tail twitching against the door.
