Mountain lion relocated from Shell to Clarks Fork Canyon area

A young mountain lion was recently relocated to a remote spot in the Shoshone National Forest after causing some trouble in the Shell area.

Greybull Game Warden Bill Robertson and Wyoming Game and Fish Large Carnivore Biologist Luke Ellsbury captured the male after reports that it had been hanging around a house. It also killed a cat belonging to Shell residents Glen and Lee Leavitt, the Greybull Standard reported.

“Was I scared? Yeah, a little, just because he (the mountain lion) was so brave,” Glen Leavitt told the Greybull Standard. “He wasn’t scared of anything.”

The yearling lion appeared to be in good physical shape and was taken to the Clark Fork Canyon area, the Game and Fish said in its July newsletter.
