Mountain lion captured after causing scare in Durango

News

DURANGO, Colo. (KRQE) – Wildlife officials have captured a mountain lion that got a little too close to Miller Middle School in Durango.

Those at the school were a little worried after a deer carcass was found on school grounds and another left in a nearby neighborhood — both the obvious work of a hungry mountain lion.

According to the Durango Herald, the mountain lion in question was caught Saturday. Turns out she was getting food for two. Her cub was also found the night before.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife decided to release both back into the wild near the Utah-New Mexico state line.
