PLATTE COUNTY, MO (2011-01-25) The weekend shooting of a Mountain Lion near Laplata in northeast Missouri is the 4th confirmed sighting in the state since November.
Another was in Platte county. Joe Jerek with the Missouri Department of Conservation says there have only been 14 confirmed sightings in Missouri in the last 16 years. But he says it's not surprising the rash of recent reports are coming this winter. The Missouri Department of Conservation has even assembled a Mountain Lion response team to investigate sightings or killings of Mountain Lions in the state.
