Original Title: Dallas County mountain lion still on the prowl

WHO 13 News has received a new trail camera photo of a mountain lion living in northeastern Dallas County. It was taken May 1st by the same camera that snapped multiple shots of a similarly-sized mountain lion back in February of this year. While the Iowa DNR agrees this could be the same animal, furbearer biologist, Vince Evelsizer, says one photo is not enough evidence to make a solid confirmation.

“We’ve had several reports this winter of a mountain lion in Webster County,” says Evelsizer. “As that area and this part of Dallas County are connected by the Des Moines River valley, this would suggest that one animal has been using the corridor for cover and food this winter.”
