PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Wildlife officials in South Dakota report that three mountain lions have been killed so far during the hunting season in the Black Hills Fire Protection District.

A report from the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks shows two of the three lions killed were males. One was killed in Pennington County and the other one in Custer County. The female lion was killed in Pennington County.

The season began Dec. 26 and will conclude March 31, unless the harvest limit of 60 total mountain lions or 40 female lions is reached prior to that date. The mountain lion season outside of the Black Hills district runs year-round.

The state has had a residents-only mountain lion season since 2005.
