Residents in Hamilton, MT have reported seeing lions routinely around their homes recently. Even in the Middle of the day time. A reminder that with very high numbers of lions on the landscape the sightings are expected to increase. Lions passing through your property or those killing wild game are not usually a threat to you or your livestock however, respect for these animals and good judgment is in order.
The featured photo was submitted by Bob Kubiack of Hamilton a few days ago (Aug 10) taken through his window blinds. This lion was walking through his front yard. He also found where a white tailed deer fawn was killed in his yard by the predator but so far no threat to the animals he owns has been suspected.
If you see a mountain lion acting strangely or showing no fear of humans call the MT FPW regional office.
