DNR investigating shooting of cougar

Dec. 8, 2011 | 0 comments

The state Department of Natural Resources is investigating the fatal shooting of a cougar in southwest Minnesota.

It's illegal to shoot mountain lions, or cougars, in Minnesota unless they're posing a threat. Bruce Ihnen said he was finishing chores on his brother's farm in Jackson County's Round Lake Township when the cougar came out of a grove and ran into a culvert. Ihnen says he called a neighbor and the two chased it out of the culvert and his neighbor shot it.

DNR spokesman Chris Niskanen says it is likely the first cougar shot by a citizen in Minnesota's "modern history." He says the 125-pound animal is being examined by the agency's wildlife biologists in Grand Rapids.
