PLATTE COUNTY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation has confirmed a mountain lion sighting in Platte County north of Kansas City. The Kansas City Star reported that a landowner near the Missouri River took a photograph last week of a mountain lion in a tree on his property. State wildlife researchers found evidence of claw marks and fur at the site. The Star said it’s the 11th confirmed case of mountain lions in Missouri. There has been evidence of mountain lions prowling around Clinton Lake and the edges of Lawrence. About four years ago, an Ottawa family reported seeing a mountain lion in southern Ottawa. Wildlife experts said that sighting couldn’t be confirmed but they also said that it was likely a mountain lion.
