(WICHITA, Kan.) — Research Biologist Matt Peek says it was a trail camera that caught the mountain lion in Stafford County.
"It's fairly uncommon. That's the ninth one we've observed in the state since 2007 or that we can confirm in the state since 2007,” Peek said.
The picture was taken October 31. But the deer hunter, who put the camera up near his stand, didn't check his pictures until last week.
"Tenth, fifteenth picture I went through when I came across the mountain lion. Shocked to say the least,” Kurt Keesling, the deer hunter, said.
