MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - State wildlife officials killed a female mountain lion and three kittens after they killed two dogs on the northwestern edge of Missoula, near a school bus stop in the Grant Creek area.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks wildlife management specialist Jaime Jonkel tells the Missoulian (https://bit.ly/2jlgy4G ) the adult female killed a 35-pound dog on Sunday. Wardens decided the mountain lions needed to be removed and killed two of the kittens on Monday.

They were waiting for the adult and the other kitten near where the first dog had been cached when they received a call that another dog had been killed.

Jonkel says a game warden was able to kill the other mountain lions while they were feeding on the dog.
