Mountain Lion Roams Near Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

Students at Prairie Rose Elementary School are staying indoors after officials received reports of a mountain lion roaming in the area. Bismarck Public Schools notified parents and guardians through the PowerAnnouncement system this morning.

Randy Kriel of the North Dakota Game and Fish Department says the schools did the right thing in taking the precautions. He says it's very possible a lion could be seen in the Missouri River Valley, because rivers are natural travel corridors. But the Game and Fish is still trying to confirm who saw what and where.

School officials say it's not an emergency, but students will not be going outside for recess, and parents are asked to schedule a pick-up for children who normally walk home from the school.

Pick-ups can be scheduled by calling: (701) 323-4280.
