Reports of a mountain lion being shot and killed near Hitchcock have surfaced. Sources say the 118-pound yearling tomcat took down an 800-pound steer as his last meal. A local livestock operator was feeding when he saw the predator come onto his feedlot. At that time, it is reported that a neighbor shot and killed the mountain lion. Huron’s Wildlife Office has confirmed knowledge of the incident and full information from them will follow in next week’s paper.
