ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Officers with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) were called Tuesday to dispatch a mountain lion from a farm near Galva, in northeast Ida County.

The situation arose after a neighboring livestock producer discovered a dead calf that showed evidence consistent with an attack by a large cat late last week. Repeated calls were placed to 911 Monday evening by a nearby landowner who discovered the cat.

DNR officers use lethal action as the last resort option in these situations and every effort is made to humanely remove the animal.
