Mountain lion kills Wingfield Road mare

Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015 — A Wingfield Road resident who lives near the Peter Lassen Monument and asked not to be identified reports a 5-year-old mare was killed by a mountain lion in the early morning hours Thursday, Jan. 15.

The resident said the Lassen County trapper was searching for the lion, and she was concerned because many residents bike, jog and walk along that section of Wingfield Road. The newspaper was unable to contact the California Department of Fish and Wildlife by deadline to confirm the resident’s report by deadline.
