Idaho Department of Fish and Game officials say they have shot and killed a mountain lion in south-central Idaho.

The agency said Monday the female big cat was one of two mountain lions that had killed several domestic cats and a dog in the past week near the town of Oakley.

Fish and Game officers have set up live traps to capture the second mountain lion.

In Idaho, mountain lions posing an immediate threat to a person or property can be killed without a proper license tag.
