A mountain lion sighting has been confirmed in northeast Nebraska.
Matt Morgan, who lives in Thurston County, informed officials he found a deer carcass in a tree on his property. He stated a trail camera took a photography of a mountain lion as it walked past the tree.
The Winnebago Wildlife and Parks Department reports the photo was taken east of Winnebago late last week.
Mountain lions roamed Nebraska for years, but hunting nearly eliminated them. They have been making a steady comeback since the latter part of the 20th Century.
