Mountain lion attacks dogs in Bellevue


Idaho Department of Fish & Game Wildlife Manager Randy Smith confirmed that a mountain lion has been responsible for attacking a number of animals in Bellevue, including a dog that was badly injured last night.

This morning, Smith said that Rob Morris, a Fish and Game conservation officer responsible for the south portion of the Wood River Valley, was in the process of tracking the mountain lion with the help of fellow conservation officer Lee Garwood and members of the Blaine County Sheriff's Office.

Smith said that if caught, the mountain lion would either be relocated or euthanized.

An anonymous tip to the Mountain Express' breaking news line said that the attacks happened around Broadford Road, near the Big Wood River.
