We will show the SDGFP power point, shown to the SDGFP Commission in July, that provides updates on the GFP’s estimates of the Mountain Lion population on the SD side of the Black Hills. We will also discuss cougar management in SD’s Prairie Unit & on some tribal lands in SD. We will discuss cougar management in Nebraska as the Pine Ridge Ecosystem exists in both States on both tribal/non-tribal land. We will also discuss cougar management in Wyoming, as the Black Hills is in both states.
Penny Maldonado of Cougar Fund will join us & staff of Mountain Lion Foundation has also been invited.
Time permitting we may briefly update folks on beaver & otter management issues, the proposed shooting range at Elk Creek/Elk Vale Rd. & other issues associated with SDGFP.
