Pet Mountain Lion Slain By Montana Game Official
A 'pussycat' mountain lion taking a nap on the porch of a Helena resident was shot to death while sleeping. The cat had done nothing to anyone and apparently only wanted to snooze in a warm, sheltered spot.
The one year-old lion is shown in the attached photo lying dead in the bed of a pickup truck, its body growing cold in the brisk Montaina air. It was not clear what would become of the lion's carcass or if its owner was made aware of the slaying.
