Mountain lion captured, killed in Frenchtown

FRENCHTOWN- A mountain lion has been captured and killed after preying on pigs in a neighborhood near Interstate 90.

Earlier this week, Frenchtown resident Tori Haffner came home from work and found her pigs dead and partly buried in the backyard. The family set up a game camera and a trap to catch the mountain lion, at the instruction of wildlife officials.

The Frenchtown School District also released an alert to families with young students who ride the bus.

On Friday, Haffner posted that the lion had been captured and shot.

We have a call in to wildlife officials to learn more.
