CHADRON, Neb. (KNOP) - A land owner found the goats on October 24th. Game and Parks biologists examined the carcasses and the area and believe a mountain lion was responsible.
Officials did euthanize the mountain lion. Game and Parks is working with the land owner to use a management plan to reduce the chance of a similar event happening again.
This is the third confirmed case of a mountain lion killing livestock in modern times.
