KDWPT staff recently reviewed a trail camera photo of a mountain lion taken in Kiowa County.

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism captured a photo of a mountain lion in Kiowa County.

The lion was caught on a trail camera in the southwest Kansas county.

The KDWPT said in a social media post that this is the first time multiple photos of cats have been confirmed in the same area.
