A few years back, one of the world's most beloved children's book authors completed her last book just four days before she passed away at the age of 92. Jean Craighead George was the Newberry award-winning author of over 100 picture and chapter books including Julie of the Wolves and My Side of the Mountain.  

A Mountain Lion and her two cubs have been active near Jackson’s Cache Creek Trailhead and officials are warning people to be cautious.  Mary Cernicek of the Bridger Teton National Forest says people should try to avoid an encounter. “It’s a good way to protect yourself by not having uncontrolled pets in the area and hang onto the little ones," Cernicek said.

A mountain lion spotted in a Gillette neighborhood has been killed.

Wyoming Game and Fish officials say the 2-year-old female cat was shot Tuesday to protect the public.

Some people reported seeing the cat on Monday but officers weren't able to find where it was living until the following day.

Game warden Irah Leonetti said the cat was living under a trailer in an area just east of an industrial park and had been feeding on some deer.

The last time he can remember a mountain lion being shot in the city was in 2008.
