South Dakota Cougar Attacks [VIDEO]


(This video is an actual close encounter with a wild mountain lion in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  It was only about 20 yards away from the videographer.) 

If you are planning on spending your Labor Day weekend camping in the Rapid City area you may want to take your anti-cougar spray with ya.

Residents of a canyon area just outside the Rapid City limits are asking state wildlife officials to remove a mountain lion they say has killed a deer and dozens of cats.

A local resident said that after the lion killed a deer she found the carcass in her yard and there was blood on her deck.   Area residents are concerned for their safety.

According to Game, Fish and Parks Regional Supervisor Mike Kintigh:

The rules bar the agency from killing the lion.  If it was attacking pets or livestock, was threatening people or was inside the city limits then wildlife officials would act immediately, but for now all they can do is monitor the situation.
