After seeing more and more mountain lion pictures coming from Missouri, I figured it would not be long before Illinois would have more sightings.
The story is provided in the link below.
Cool Picture! I would say it is a one in a lifetime capture, but may not be over the next few years!
Was the photo confirmed by the IDNR? Is it illegal to shoot one even if the person is not threatened? just wondering.
Yes it was comfirmed by DNR The SJR has a picture of the biologist standing right next to the sames trees
Yes it is legal to shoot a mountain lion in Illinois. They do not exist in this state so you can’t be ticketed for shooting something that doesn’t exist. Thats not a joke, that came from a CPO.
Thats only 230 or so miles from the one spotted in Missouri on 10/10! Probably had a heckuva time getting through the St Louis traffic! Heading towards Peoria now!
