Mountain Lion Tracked and Killed in Garden City 

A Fish and Game spokesman said since the animal was moving toward homes, the kill order was given.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game confirms that wildlife officers and Garden City Police hunted down and killed an adult mountain lion Feb. 6 near the Riverside subdivision.

A Garden City homeowner called police in the late afternoon hours of Feb. 6, saying the female mountain lion was outside his home. That prompted wildlife officers to team up with a houndsman and Garden City law enforcement to track the animal, which was discovered shortly thereafter near another neighborhood.

A Fish and Game spokesman said since the animal was moving toward homes, the kill order was given.
