Big Cat Taken Out at CSU Over the Weekend
A mountain lion was shot and killed over the weekend after it had gotten into a goat shed at a research laboratory on CSU’s Foothills Campus. The animal was found in the pen twice and was considered depredatory, meaning it had “keyed in on” livestock, and a serious threat to the animals.
