Nebraska lawmakers approve mountain lion hunting bill

from The Associated Press via New England Cable News

Nebraska lawmakers passed a bill that would allow for mountain lion hunting and create a state program that lets hunters donate deer meat to the hungry. The proposals mixed into one bill won final approval, 49-0. State Sen. LeRoy Louden of Ellsworth introduced the mountain lion hunting bill in response to increased sightings in Nebraska. Current state law only allows people to kill mountain lions if they are threatening humans or livestock. State officials say the mountain lion population is increasing, although the number of lions is estimated at fewer than 60 statewide. If the population continues to grow, Game and Parks could create a limited hunting season that would likely allow up to four lions to be taken per year. more
