The ninth mountain lion killed during the North Dakota early hunting season is female, putting the total at eight females and one male.

Stephanie Tucker, North Dakota Game and Fish Department furbearer biologist, said she'd like to see fewer females taken in the harvest but she isn't too concerned.
