Mountain Lion spotted in Northwest Bismarck


A mountain lion is confirmed to be in northwest Bismarck along the Missouri River.

The Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind the public that mountain lions are native to North Dakota and have been known to travel this area. 

They also want to remind people that these are wild animals but typically don’t pose a threat to humans. 

However, they want people to remember to be aware of their surroundings when out in rural areas. 

Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department will continue to monitor the situation alongside the North Dakota Game & Fish Department.
