At 8:10 am this morning, a call came in from a concerned resident, as their children observed a collared mountain lion in front of their residence. The mountain lion had killed a sheep in the field between Kelso extending to the area of the fairgrounds. Bishop Police Department responded immediately to the scene and secured the area. Fish and Wildlife tranquilized and trapped the mountain lion behind 501 Sierra St.  Fish and Wildlife will now determine whether the mountain lion should be relocated or euthanized.
