LAWTON, N.D. (AP) - A game warden supervisor with North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department says a mountain lion was injured when hit by a vehicle in Ramsey County and was euthanized.

The Tuesday night crash west of Lawton was unusual - northeastern North Dakota is not prime mountain lion habitat. Game Warden Supervisor Paul Freeman tells KZZY radio that the lion was a young male.

The driver of the vehicle was not hurt in the crash. Game and Fish will take possession of the lion carcass for study purposes.
