Pine Ridge Unit Season 2 Mountain Lion Season Closed — Update

LINCOLN – The Pine Ridge Unit Season 2 mountain lion season is closed following the harvest of a female mountain lion Feb. 26 in Sheridan County. The lion showed no signs of lactation or dependent young.

The 102-pound lion was approximately 5½ years old and appeared to have been in good health. One of its ears had a tag from South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks.

The season closed immediately once the harvest subquota of one female was met. Season 1 in the Pine Ridge Unit closed when two male mountain lions were harvested Jan. 2. The season continues in the Prairie Unit, which encompasses most of the state.
