Photo submitted The size of a 200-pound mountain lion's paw is gauged next to the hand of a hunter who shot the marauding cat three miles north of Cedaredge on July 21.

On July 21, on a private property three miles north of Cedaredge, a marauding mountain was taken. The property owner, who asked that her name not be used, told the DCI that state wildlife official had given permission for the animal to be taken. Wildlife officials took possession of the carcass.

The lion had been raiding livestock on family property and had taken three goats. "The goats were taken in pre-dawn and the cat came back in the evening," explained the landowner in an e-mail. "The approximate weight was 200 pounds and its tail touched the ground when it was draped over the four-wheeler."
