LATIMER COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) – A Latimer County landowner has spotted a unique trespasser on his land.
Last week, Josh Smith says he was checking his trail camera at his Latimer County property when he spotted an unusual sight.
Smith captured a photo of a large cat prowling across his property.
He contacted the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, who confirmed the animal as a mountain lion.
This is the fifth confirmed sighting of a mountain lion in the Sooner State in 2022.
Officials say mountain lions are a transient species in Oklahoma, and the department is working to build its database of sightings.
