Lion presence confirmed near ND elementary school
Game and Fish Department Wildlife Chief Randy Kreil says the lion was videotaped by a private trail camera west of the University of Mary in late October, and the camera's owner hasn't seen it since.
Kreil says it's not known if the big cat is still in the area. But he says there have been no reports of any livestock or pets in the area being killed.
Students at Prairie Rose Elementary were kept indoors Tuesday and an armed school resource officer was on site. Students were allowed outside again Wednesday and Thursday until another reported lion siting Thursday. The Bismarck Tribune reports students were then kept inside for recess.
